Being way too excited to install and play with OpenVMS on a DS10L I just aquired, I have two questions related to my impatient state:

1. The hobbyist website says that the AXP Media Kit 3.0 will be available after May 28. Is there a way to get a prior kit now?

2. You need an Encompass membership to do anything, but I haven't heard a thing from them after submitting an application a week ago---is this normal? If so, how long does processing take?

Welcome!

Owning an Alpha has given me many hours of interest and enjoyment - and some frustration too!!

There are others who can comment on the Kits themselves, but there are a number of links, including some on this forum that would enable you to upgrade or install Layered products or freeware. Alas, if your DS10 has no OS loaded at all, this will not help.

Without knowing your geographic location it will be difficult for anyone to give you the benefit of their specific experience or advice on how long the processing will take.

As has been said elsewhere here, there are usually delays related to the manual interface between the Encompass and Hobbyist systems.
Here in the UK, it can take several weeks between initial signup with Encompass UK and the update to the Hobbyist system that enables your licenses to be issued. Fortunately, once this is complete, the actual issuing of the licenses to you takes minutes!!

If you can give more specific information about your location, I am sure someone will be able to give you more specific advice.

Good luck and keep the enthusiasm going!!

1) Sorry, that May 28 was a a year ago, the current revision is the 3.0 kit. I should have put in the year, and need to update the pages... Sorry!

2) They are usually pretty quick, and I get an update on Friday. I didn't get one this week, and the last one they sent was in a different format. I'm working on that with them.

Russell,

Thanks for the welcome! I'm from the US, but I spent a few months on business near Nottingham. I was in staying in Kegworth and working in Loughborough. It was very cool.

I have no OS, the internal IDE disk is a 30GB Maxtor 53073H4. I hope that VMS will recognize it and install. For now, I'll just have to be content with the SRM :wink:

HobbyistOne,

I appreciate you making the media kits available and I can hardly wait to order one! It sounds like I may be good to go in a week or so! Then DCL, MMS, and FORTRAN fun awaits! I'll miss BLISS, though...

Actually, you don't have to! BLISS has been released by DEC as a FreeWare tool. You can download it from the FreeWare off the OpenVMS web site, including a valid PAK. Feel free to do as much BLISS as you'd like!

If you don't have a copy then download the entire Freeware CD's from

This is too cool! I had no idea that they ported BLISS to the alpha! I didn't see any documentation for the BLISS-64E implimentation... I wonder if E stands for "Emulator", BLISS being architecture specific. Anyway, I really, really need a license now!

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
