Is there any free/hobbyist Alpha emulator out there that runs under Linux either 32 or 64 bit? The other thing is that it should allow a decent amount of memory. The typical 128MB doesn't cut it when playing with databases and other modern software.

There is one that is described as a work in progress. A search engine should easily come up with a link to it. It is my understanding that it can at least boot VMS.

I also saw a report of a commercial product that was in Beta, but I have not been tracking that.

Hi!

Interesting to look at AlphaVM-free (http://emuvm.com/). It's up to 512Mb RAM to emulate (http://emuvm.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=12&Itemid=8).

I've been playing around with FreeAXP and I have a small Alpha VM running in that. If you haven't already checked that out it may do what you need.

Hi, guys!

I found new AlphaVM-free 1.1.4 version for Linux on http://emuvm.com/ today.

Let's try it.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
