RFD Split the group ...700/800 & ...300/400

Post by Anton Gam » Tue, 11 Feb 1997 04:00:00



Excuse me, I am not a friend of those infinite numbers of newsgroups
but in this case it seems to be inevitable.

Again and again I registerd confusion about the hardware concerning
the differences of HP 9000 computers of the series 300/400 or 700/800.
Valuable suggestions were restricted to only one of the two groups
and did not help at last.

Now after HPUX 10.XX is released and 300/400 systems will
experience no further upgrade beyond 9.1 (support ends 2000 or so)
it is time to split comp.sys.hp.hpux into
      comp.sys.hp.hpux.300/400
      comp.sys.hp.hpux.700/800

...300/400 could become a kind of folklore group. Special problems will
be discussed there freed from a flood of 700/800 related articles.
The other way around: Those intrested in 700/800 series could focus
on HPUX 10.XX problems. Never again start to make suggestions
about a similar problem you had in 10.XX until you see that the question
was about a problem on a 300/400 with HPUX 9.01 or so.

This is all I want to say and I hope there will be a good discussion
and may be some other suggestions.

Greetings

Anton J. Gamel

I really would be interested in such a split up. I'm very fond of my
425t running at home with 2Gb and 64 Mb. I sometimes think I'm the only
idiot that has a machine like this at home. There must be more users
like me...

1. Binary problems w/700 & 800 series machines.

Hi All,

Are there binary incompatibilities between 7xx and 8xx HP
workstations/servers.
We have some code which has been compiled on HPUX 10.01 using
/opt/ansic/bin/cc
on a 7xx series machine. I have tried to run the compiled binaries on a
HP 9000/879
series machine, but they will only produce a core file.

If I recompile the source code on the 7xx series machine with the +DA879
and +DS879
ansi c compiler options will this produce the correct binaries, which
will run on the 879
series machine? If not how can I produce 8xx series compliant binaries
on a 7xx series machine?

Thanks,
    Stover Babcock
