Köln is just a two hour trip away. I would do it, but no room to store them. Blast. :(

Re: Diagnosing an HP Visualize C3000

Yes, it has a serial port. Power the machine down, hook something up there, power it on again. It's been a (very, VERY) long time since I've messed with UX machines of that era, but I recall that those machines could be quite picky about monitors. Hooking up a different monitor or using a different ...

Re: Hpux 11.11 shlib_path

Oh, heh. Yeah, this is (probably) one of the examples why I stopped using the rubbish from connect.org.uk. There's packages in there that would make your eyes bleed. Missing files, badly labeled stuff, wrong permissions, you name it. Not to say that everything on there is bad - that wouldn't be nice...

Re: Putting the C8000 to good use?

Just a late reply - no, there isn't such a thing as an Itanium C8000, but indeed, a zx2000 is pretty much the same (and it uses the exact same case indeed). Better off getting a zx6000 though, dual CPU. Correct, there isn't much software for HP-UX available. No, it's not hard to compile stuff for it...

Re: Putting the C8000 to good use?

Unfortunately that's the dilemma with many of these machines is that finding software for them is very difficult or impossible. It seems to be particularly problematic with Tru64, VMS, HP-UX, AIX. IRIX/SGI is one of the best systems for a hobbyist to have. ... why? I don't see how it's any more or ...

Re: rx4640 loses USB keyboard support when booting OpenVMS

I did some digging online and found out that apparently OpenVMS on I64 isn't able to accept USB input during boot at all. This means that a serial console seems to be the only input method until the X server has been initialized. Hrm. That would imply I installed VMS on mine using the console, whic...

I just got two EV47's missing the hard drives. I got new drives and tried to install tru64 5.1B Well didn't get to far attempting to boot from either a CDROM or RIS server it reads the boot loader OK but hangs with "jumping to bootstrap code". I gather from from searching the need you nee...

Re: Putting the C8000 to good use?

What exactly do you want to run on it? I (used to) have a large pkgsrc install on it - HP-UX 11.11 is a pretty easy-going target for that. Had a more-modern-than-CDE desktop (fluxbox, iirc xfce as well), gimp, some games, etcetera. Firefox is a total pain to build due to its use of ASM (and the fact...

Re: SGI Fuel getting props - "Impressed by a 10 year old computer"

Oh, christ. That thread again. The machines are 10 years old. Compare them to other machines of the same age, and there's a chance you're not talking bullshit. Claiming that a Fuel - any Fuel - can outperform even the shittiest low-budget Intel cpu for sale at the moment at whatever task, is reaaaaa...

Re: NFS issues with Open Genera on Tru64

Long shot here, but anyway... - Is it *supposed* to work (as in, do you have any documentation which mentions it being supported)? - Can you mount shares that are *not* on the host itself? Reason for asking this is having similar symptoms with an older version of a completely different emulator (sim...

Re: HP C8000, Compaq XP1000 or HP zx2000

Something similar was promised for HP-UX once, but that seems uncertain now (read: rather unlikely) The port existed internally, and was shitcanned because it would have cost in the range of $100M to get to production quality, and that kind of money on a line of OSes which, let's be honest, isn't d...

Re: HP C8000, Compaq XP1000 or HP zx2000

The zx2000 is a fairly rare and wanted system, in its niche of course. It's definitely a very nice system, as a rather quiet and energy-efficient one (compared to other systems in its class), which would accommodate a large number of platforms and fairly recent and up-to-date ones, too, I might add...

Re: Linux distro opinions

I use debian on virtually everything. Mint is pretty decent too - it's debian based after all - but so far I've stuck with debian plus the cinnamon desktop (it's in the official repos). I wouldn't go for Ubuntu because of its obvious unfitness out-of-the-box for slightly older hardware, but it all c...
