Hi!

I just installed OpenVMS 7.3-1 on an AlphaStation 255. Without DecWindows, everything works fine, but when I install DecWindows, the system crashes during the boot process:

after several messages at the Operator Console the screen turns black and nothing happens. Ctrl+F2 shows the Operator Console, but a login is impossible - neither at the Console nor via serial terminal connection nor via Telnet.

When I remove DecWindows, everything works fine again.
As you may have noticed, I'm new to VMS.

I would highly appreciate any comments smiley


Best regards
Bert

Dear Bert,
I suspect there are many possible causes for this, but one I have seen before is license related. If the Openvms and dw licences are not loaded properly, decwindows doesn't always load or function correctly.
You could also try uninstalling and re-installing.
Good Luck

Check that you have a DWMOTIF licence and that your system parameters are set according to the requirements for motif. Instructions as to how are in the doc for motif

I suspect that the graphic card might be the problem. I am using a Matrox Mystique PCI card.

As I can't get hold on a Digital card, could you help me on how to configure DECWindows to run in standard VGA mode?

Is there a list of compartible graphic controllers for DECWindows?

Thank you very much!

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.
