What would you do with it/install on it? Or is it ready for disposal? HP-UX is not an option because of the incompatible graphics card.

OpenVMS, but that, too, might not like your graphics card.

Other than that, Windows Server or Linux are the only other big contenders.

OpenVMS. Linux is Linux on that hardware (but Linux without as much precompiled software).

Don't dispose it :) I'm sure you'll find a geek nearby that will enjoy it.

If pontus doesn't want it, I'll pay shipping to UK happily.

I don't think I'll be able to add much to the shipping fee - but feel free to put a price together you'd be happy with (incl shipping) and we can take it from there :-)

thx

I don't want it bad enough to cough up the dough, I hope you find a home (yours or otherwise) for you nice machine.

You can always use serial console and network display if you want to have the HP-UX experience.

You must have very strange graphics in that if UX doesn't take em. Non HP parts, I guess?

I have a dual boot OpenVMS/HP-UX on my zx6000. I put in a PCI radeon 7000 because the standard card - an Ati FireGL something - was very unsupported in VMS. The 7000 works fine for both. :)

Hp also provided the zx6000 with NVIDIA graphics. All Parts are from hp. See the specs at hp.com.

Ah, true - I forgot about the RedHat 2.1 bundle. Right, you can forget about getting that to work in nonlinux then... :)
