I don't know German but I know enough to tell you that will only work if
your videocard
has enough RAM - if you have a 2MB card, forget it... maybe, just maybe you
get it to work with -depth 8 ...

1. upgrading V4.0F to Tru64 V4.0G


Being new to Tru64, and having a difficult time navigating Compaq's (I
tried RTM) web site for information, I was hoping someone in this
group may be of assistance.

I have just inherited the responsibility of maintaining three (3)
workstations at three different, and very remote sites.  I know that
one (1) system is running Tru64 UNIX V4.0F, while two (2) others are
running on Tru64 UNIX V4.0G.  I have been assigned the task of
bringing them all up to the same version of Tru64.  My questions are

Would there be a difference between a
 system upgraded' from F' to G',
 versus a system with a freshly loaded
 copy of G'?  i.e., should I reinstall
 Tru64 to insure consistency amongst

How do I tell the patch level of the
 G' systems?

Can someone recommend a good web site
 for a Tru64 newbie to quickly come up
 to speed?

Best regards,
