wiki1181: GetTheOSSource (Version 16)

Get It -- Downloading the Neutrino OS/Kernel Source#

Fist, check the policy for source access.

This is the easy way to get the OS source down to your system and start working with it. For a deeper understanding of how the repository is structured, you will want to read about the Neutrino source tree.

Direct Source Repository Access#

The Neutrino OS source is maintained in a single Subversion (SVN) repository and can be checked out:

 svn checkout --username <username>

Where <username> is the username you created to register with the QNX Developer Community (myQNX). Anonymous access is not currently provided to the source repository.

An SVN, or subversion, command-line client is included as part of the Momentics Development Environment for Neutrino hosts only. For windows and linux hosts you can download it from from

This will get you the entire OS source which includes the kernel and process manager as well as the associated libraries, services and utilities for the Neutrino OS.

Alternate Souce Access#

At this time the Neutrino OS is only available directly from the SVN repository. At some point in the future we expect to provide regular snapshots of the source repository available in archive format.
