Hi,

After having request for Hobbyist PAK, I've downloaded the C_COMPILER_73.ZIP from the HP ftp at the same time I've got OpenVMS84.ISO.

If I manage corrctly to install both openvms84 and openvms84 update, then I try to install C_COMPILER but all my tries failled.

VMSINSTAL told me that CC073.a is nit HP signed then stop.

Anyone do have installed C compiler ???

Best regards

I have installed the C compiler. I do not recall if complained about the kit not being signed.

From what I understand, it prompts interactively for you continue the operation.

I've done the following:
unzip c_compiler_73.zip get from HP ftp
I got:
Archive: DKA200:[000000]C_COMPILER_73.ZIP;1
inflating: cc073.a
inflating: cc073.b
inflating: cc073_iguide.txt

then
GFI>SET DEFAULT SYS$UPDATE
GFI>@SYS$UPDATE:VMSINSTAL CC073 $dka100:[temp] OPTIONS N


OpenVMS Software Product Installation Procedure V8.4


It is 1-APR-2012 at 00:30.

Enter a question mark (?) at any time for help.

* Are you satisfied with the backup of your system disk [YES]? y
* Where will the distribution volumes be mounted: dka100:[temp]


The following products will be processed:

CC V7.3


Beginning installation of CC V7.3 at 00:33

**********************************************************************
%VMSINSTAL-I-VALSIGN, Performing product kit validation of signed kits ...
%VMSINSTAL-I-NOVALDONE, Product is not signed by HP
* Do you want to install this product [NO]?y
%VMSINSTAL-I-RESTORE, Restoring product save set A ...
%BACKUP-F-NOTSAVESET, DKA100:[temp]CC073.A;1 is not a BACKUP save set
%VMSINSTAL-E-NOSAVESET, Save set A cannot be restored.


VMSINSTAL procedure done at 00:35


GFI>

So the installation do not install anything!


I do not understand since the c_compiler_73.zip is directly coming from HP ftp.

The fortran, form the same source give not problem of installtion, but was not set of save_set but compressed PSI to be installed with product.

What(s wrong???

It is looking like the CC073.A is not a valid save set.

When you downloaded the kit via FTP did you make sure that you used the BINARY or IMAGE option instead of ASCII or TEXT?

Some FTP clients will guess wrong on which format to used based on the file extension.

Also, you do not need to and should not set default to SYS$UPDATE:

Where you set default to is where temp files go, and setting your default to various places typically results in a lot of junk files cluttering the disk, especially sys$sysroot;.

Thanks for your help,

I do fix my problem, those save-set was corrupted by the way I make the file available to my emulated alpha, I fix this using reset_backup_saveset_file_attributes.com

Now c and fortran are installed on my emulated alpha.

I guess I will have much more trouble before I got this emulated alpha running like the physical one...

best regards

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.
