Hi all

Besides my personalalpha emulated machine I just got a brand "new" alpha station ( 500 )

It was supposed to have openvms installed & working on, but it's not.

So I took the hobbyst cd to install the 8.3 version but the alpha complained, cos a newer firmware ( 6.4 is the one on board) is needed.

I Went to
http://ftp.digital.com/pub/DEC/Alpha/firmware/archive/astn500.html

I tried the "Floppy Disk Update - OpenVMS" using my virtual machine but it seems not writing on the diskette. smiley


So I choosed the "FAT-formatted" way.

As i rebooted the alpha machine (os_type NT ) I went to boot menu, install new firmware but all i got is an error on updating the rom

Unknown (0x28)
APU-E ROM DEVICE JUMPER ON ?
Unknown (0x28)
APU-E ROM DEVICE JUMPER ON ?

press RETURN to continue

I saw somewhere on google ( googoled too much, can't remember *where*) than I might have to "move" the jumper #18 to enable the writing on the rom.

I moved the jumper from position "110" to "011" , rebooted again the alpha and I got:

Unknown (0x00)
APU-E ROM DEVICE JUMPER ON ?
Unknown (0x00)
APU-E ROM DEVICE JUMPER ON ?

/ me lost

Any hints to help solving the issue would be VERY appreciated
thanks

Thanks Stephen
Unfortunately I tried *everything* but I did not found a solution.
It really seems to be a HW problem

Anyway, I exchanged my alpha with a "new" one

Let's mark this post as "solved" , as now I can play again smiley

that means that I CAN'T run any ssh server on my openvms 7.3? smiley

main problem is that I can't ( better... i don't know how ) forward the X without ssh
using telnet from a linux pc I do

telnet openvms
Welcome to OpenVMS (TM) Alpha Operating System, Version V7.3
......
$set term/inquire
$ SET DIS/CRE/NODE="192.168.0.18" /TRANS=TCPIP
$ RUN SYS$SYSTEMsmileyECW$SESSION
but it works only on the (internal) lan

as I try to log in from "internet" i get:
X Toolkit Error: Can't open display:
Fatal error detected, image exiting -- final message:
no safety display could be opened
: no such file or directory


I tried to update the tcpip using the openvms 8.3 hobbyis cd but "he" told me it was incompatible

I think I might have a copy of one that Mark Davis had running. There was also a ssh client called FISH, too. I'll see if I can find it and post a copy.

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.
