Can you mount QNX from Linux?


I'm in need of making a QNX recovery program, that will recover the file system if it would go bad. A thought is to run this program from linux and thus would have to mount the QNX partition on the linux side. Are you able to mount a QNX partition from linux? If so, how do you go about doing this.

Yes, you can mount qnx filesystems. You need to have CONFIG_QNX4FS_FS enabled (works for QNX4 and 6 aka QNX RTP). If you use a distro stock kernel you might have the module already compiled (try modprobe qnx4). If the modules isn't there then you will have to re-compile the kernel and enable QNX filesystem support in the filesystem section. Read only support seems to be well tested. Write support is tagged as "dangerous" so you might want to stay away from that.

Once you have the module compiled mount your qnx drive with the -t qnx4 option to mount.

When you say re-compile the kernel, you are talking about the Linux kernel, not the QNX kernel right???

The idea here, is to mount QNX4 and trouble shoot on a system failure, by having a par2 backup on linux of the QNX4 filesystem. Is this a feasible idea???

Yup, the Linux kernel. Try modprobe first, though. Might save you some work

Sure, backups are always a good idea.

Unhappy

I know this thread is too old. I reached here through google. In ubuntu 12.04 I can mount QNX 4 and 6 but the QNX disk mounts as read-only.
"mount -o rw -t qnx source destination" doesn't work. I tried mount -o remount,rw also . It mounts read only. Is there any workaround

cat /proc/filesystems

Best to use qnx to access qnx file systems.
