AMD running on OSF/1 (dec/alpha) version 3.2 run on OSF/1 4.0?

Post by Mark Purinto » Tue, 19 Nov 1996 04:00:00


        I have a configuration of AMD built under OSF/1 version 3.2

running on OSF/1 version 4.0.  

        I am experiencing a large amount of NFS timeouts and retrys

to remove files between to OSF/1 (dec/alpha) systems.

        One system is running the OSF/1 3.2 OS and the other is running

4.0 OS version.  Both running the same AMD build; (AMD version

%amd -v <cr>

1. Running Digital Unix 4.0 or OSF/1 3.2 binaries


I would like to compile the Standard ML compiler SML/NY for Linux
Alpha. Unfortunately, it is written in SML/NY, so you need a binary
for bootstrapping. Those are available for Digital Unix 4.0 and OSF/1
3.2. Are there any chances I might get them running?


2. NIC Help - Driver won't compile

3. hostid on DEC-Alpha running OSF

4. Linux as a Internet gateway/firewall for windoze intranet?

5. Email Server on DEC Alpha running OSF/1 3.0

6. Sax problem... (or X problem)

7. Is crack available for the DEC Alpha running OSF/1?

8. /bin/sh with SSH

9. ZSH-3.0.5 on DEC OSF 4.0 & 3.2
