fs-pkg

Package filesystem (QNX Neutrino)


Note:
  • QNX Neutrino no longer uses packages, but third-party software can.
  • You must be root to start this manager.

Syntax:

fs-pkg [-a alternate_file] [-d] [-v[v]...]
       [-f config_file]

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:

-a alternate_file
Provide an alternative configuration file to use if no other configurations are available.
-d
Don't automatically become a daemon. This option is useful when you want verbose output for debugging.
-f config_file
Read the configuration from the file, config_file. If you don't specify this option, fs-pkg looks in:
-v[v]...
Verbose output; more v characters cause more verbosity. The output is sent to the system log if syslogd is running, and to standard output if fs-pkg is running in the foreground.

Description:

The package filesystem is a virtual filesystem manager that presents to a client a customized view of a set of files and directories. The real files are present on some medium, and the package filesystem presents a virtual view of selected files to the client.

Files:

/etc/host_cfg/hostname/etc/system/packages, /etc/system/packages
Default configuration files.

pkgctl, qnxinstall, syslogd
