Re: Xlc compiler demo install

Hi, has been a long time since I installed xlC on AIX the last time so just a few thoughts: 1. There is support for at least AIX 6.1 and AIX 7.1 according to: http://www-969.ibm.com/software/reports/compatibility/clarity-reports/report/html/softwareReqsForProduct?deliverableId=1412972021458&osPl...

Re: General DEC3000 thread

Any documentation for Digital Unix from at least 1996 (4.0A, 4.0B) is what you are looking for: https://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/references/unix/digital/ As long as you don't want to write drivers (requires an extra CD with tools, sources and documentation) the above doc library contains everything you...

Re: building current CDE on Alpha

I have OpenVMS on mine, the only thing that sucks about it, is the total lack of ready to use software. There is that one guys site, but I got completely swamped trying to sort through it and all the dependencies. "... give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you f...

Re: Problem with RMC on an XP900 immediately returning to COM port

Hi aperezbios! First of all, switch the XP900 back to non-FSL mode (switch 8 on switchpack 3 to OFF) before proceeding. Let's try something else: 1. Check SRM console variable. Some background: Alphastations (including workstations marketed models like XP900) were different in that they were shipped...

Re: Problem with RMC on an XP900 immediately returning to COM port

Hello aperezbios!!! I would suggest the following steps: 1. Check the cabling (null modem) and port (COM1) 2. Try alternate COM port (COM2). There is a SRM variable that actually allows this. 3. Just in case, after control is transferred to COM port, type the RMC escape sequence. There are 3 RMC ope...

Re: Alphaserver DS15

Hola, zahal! I have the possibility of getting a few DS10 boxes from the same source. While those are slower, they seem to be supported by more Linux distros, and they have onboard USB. For VMS you'll need version 7.3-2 or later for USB support with some tinkering to get it to work. OpenVMS 8.3 does...

Re: Some Hardware to give away

Being, *probably*, the most greedy beneficiary of this kind, helpful and very generous person, I'm beyond words in gratitude for you, Darkstar.

Though still struggling more with my health issues, I enjoy every single moment with the machines. Thank you :)

Re: Writing Games For IRIX?

Not that I've ever had any luck using them. I've been porting software between different platforms (SW + HW) for years when it all started as a hobby back in 2006/2007. There are 2 things I can say for sure: 1. Nearly every non-intel platform of the 90's provides a good enough basis to build 99% of...

Re: Writing Games For IRIX?

Didn't you know? I had no idea. I'm more the hardcore RTS gamer. My enthusiasm for FPS always kept in its limits. There was a port of the game years ago. It's still out there, it just doesn't work properly anymore. I wouldn't be opposed to anyone who decided to port EDuke either. Three things here:...

Re: Writing Games For IRIX?

I'm not a games developer but have done some compiling/porting to IRIX. Regarding programming languages/APIs, you have plenty of choices: 1. MIPSPro MIPSPro compilers from SGI include at least Fortran, C/C++ and Pascal. You'd have to lookup exactly what versions of MIPSPro provide which compilers. T...

Re: AIX Keyboard Layout

Had the same problem on HP-UX with their non PC-compatible Visualizes: Use xmodmap and xev interactively to test for the desired effect and then add the corresponding command to a global or user defined startup file (I use .cshrc). Basically you would lookup the keycode generated by your keyboards S...
