Hi,

I'm trying to compile XV on OpenVMS 8.3 (Alpha) with the HP C Compiler V7.3-009. Most of the program compiles with out any problem(applied the patches), but some parts get stopped at places like sprintf(str, "text"smiley; with the error str is undeclared.

Could anyone shed any light on this or would know the appropriate way to fix this?

Now I've moved to a real Alpha (DS10 -EV6) with the HP C Compiler 7.3-010...

Ok although I seem to have worked out the issues with compiling code, it gets to the end and says:

%link-w-muldef. symbol DECC$BASENAME multiply defined in module DECC$SHR_EV56 file sys$common:[syslib]DECC$SHR_EV56.exe;1

%MMS-F-ABORT. for target xv.exe, CLI returned abort status %X10648268

If I rerun MMS, it finishes, but trying to run xv.exe produces a stack dump

Ok apparently that's some kind of linking error, the DECC$BASENAME is conflicting somewhere, but I haven't yet been able to find out where that is.

Basename is supplied by the VMS CRTL.

Something in XV is trying to also supply it because it believes that VMS does not provide it.

It is likely that the VMS specific code in XV is from an ancient version of VMS.

See the VMS-PORTS and GNV sourceforge projects. The updated GNV component ports use a script to generate the config.h for current VMS versions.

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

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
