SDP 6.5.0 BSP Information#

This page contains important information required to compile and package BSPs with the QNX Software Development Platform 6.5.0.

The 6.4.x information page can be found here.

6.5.0 Installation Notes

6.5.0 Interoperability #

Building 6.4.x BSPs with QNX SDP 6.5.0#

6.4.x BSPs should compile and work with QNX SDP 6.5.0

Some 6.4.x BSPs contain old versions of some header files which are included in the SDP 6.5.0. If you get compile errors in these files, try removing the files from the BSP itself and recompiling:

  • syspage.h

Due to compiler changes, some 6.4.x BSPs contain source files that no longer compile. Some errors and solutions are listed below:

  • File: init_cpuinfo.c
    • Error: offset to unaligned destination
    • Resolution: make a change similar to this in the set_ccr function:

  • Error: hw/can.h: No such file or directory
    • Resolution: copy the file from prebuilt/public/hw/can.h to prebuilt/hw/can.h

    • Resolution: copy the file from prebuilt/public/sys/can_dcmd.h to prebuilt/sys/can_dcmd.h

BSP's not compatible with 6.5.0:

  • Cavium CN57xx BSP is not compatible with 6.5.0. The resolution for this is being worked on.
  • IBM PowerPC 970F is not compatible with 6.5.0.
  • BSP's pre 6.4.0 may not be compatible with 6.5.0.
NOTE: 6.4.0 BSPs for e500-based boards cannot be used with SPE turned ON; you must use 6.4.1 versions of these BSPs instead

Building 6.5.0 BSPs with QNX SDP 6.4.x#

This is not supported, and upgrading to SDP 6.5.0 is required.
