Does anyone know where I can find the layered products for OpenVMS Alpha 8.3. 8.4 has too many issues that will probably never be fixed for hobbyists.

I am running 8.4 on both Alpha and IA64. It is my understanding that the hobby media download includes an ECO rollup kit.

This ECO rollup, how can I find which issues it fixes and where is it on the ISO?

Either the disk image was remastered with the rollup or there should be an additional file in the download directory.

As I have been downloading images via Alliance One, I do not know which is being done.

Found the patch bundle and release notes. Does not seem to fix the Xforwarding issue though.

If I'm not mistaken the C Compiler I need for 8.3 can be gotten from 8.4? (trying to compile XV).

The C compiler is typically built against older VMS shared images so that it can be installed on them. I do not know how far back they are currently going.

Can you open a topic in the "Porting Open Source to OpenVMS" forum about the "Xforwarding" issues you are having?

Also see the vms-ports project on sourceforge.

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
