Looking for Tru64 DDK release 2

Unread postby TruHobbyist » Sun Feb 19, 2017 12:36 am

This kit was released soon after V5.0 and included the following on a CD:

* Driver development tools
* Device driver examples
* X Consortium code
* White papers
* HTML and PDF versions of the device driver documentation
* Device driver reference pages

Problem is this kit is needed for V5.0 and above, which is what I use (V5.1B-6). It's not available online anymore http://h41361.www4.hpe.com/docs/pub_pag ... _list.html and any attempt to google it end nowhere.

Maybe someone has a copy of it laying around? It would be *very* much appreciated :D

Writing device drivers for OSF/1 is not for the faint of heart. We had race conditions in our drivers, the kernel itself had multiple threads and I haven't touched device driver code in maybe 25 years on Alpha. Panicking Alpha was effortless. AIX device driver debugging was tedious but Tru64 was like a little minefield.

For what its worth, I have this book on my desk..

I'd say its probably worth it.

I might have DDK CDs around here somewhere but I doubt I'd ever find them.
