Recently I acquired a complete HP Tru64 UNIX V5.1B-6 box kit, with everything up to the most recent firmware and patches included. The only remaining problem: PAKs. Is there a ‘hobbyist’ program or something similar to it?

To the best of my knowledge, there is no counterpart to the VMS Hobbyist program for Tru64. I sure hope someone proves me wrong on this. This was the most recent post I turned up searching on "tru64 hobbyist program":

The recent Tru64 kits ship with either a two, or a four user licence (OSF-USER). To use the multi-user license, you also need an osf base licence pak (OSF-BASE) matched to the class of Alpha you wish to use it on. There used to be an Alpha LURT Table on the HP site, but last time I checked, it had gone. However, the As400 (Avanti/FreeAXP) only needs the lowest point OSF-BASE pak. There are usually several for sale on eBay.
You don't need the paks if you only want to log in as root.
malmberg December 12 2017 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.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
