Dear all.

I have sucessfully installed openvms073 on simulated simh vax.
cd-rom file is attached -r.

prod sh prod just shows openvms 073.

At same download location one can find F77 compiler as a zip file.

Question: what steps are required to install that (f77 compiler) in simh-vax?

I think, I have to:
unzip zip file
make in somehow available to simh-vax as cdrom/tape file?
attach & mount that file
use vmsinstall command?

A step by step guide would be great. I googled a bit but could only locate bits and pieces of
information..

thanks, Peter

ok.

I put some vax kits within 8.3 file name conventions together with unzip.exe in an iso file and made that available as dua3: to simh-vax. I manage to install unzip properly:
copy unzip.exe sys$system
$ unzip :== $sys$system:unzip (-> put that in sys$login:login.com at end of file)

---
Then I tried to install cobol057:
Directory SYS$SYSROOT:[SYSMGR.KITS]

BASIC.ZIP;1 C.ZIP;1 COBOL.DIR;1 COBOL.ZIP;1
F77.ZIP;1 PASCAL.ZIP;1 UNZIP.EXE;1 ZORKVMS.ZIP;1

Total of 8 files.
$ set def [.cobol]
$ dir

Directory SYS$SYSROOT:[SYSMGR.KITS.COBOL]

COBOL057.A;1 COBOL057.B;1 COBOL057.C;1 COBOL057_IGUIDE.TXT;
1

Total of 4 files.
$ @sys$update:vmsinstal cobol057 sys$sysroot:[sysmgr.kits.cobol]

You need more pages allocated to complete the install. Read the installation requirements in the installation guide, which is included in the install kit.

If you install the license first, then the IVP can run at the end of the installation and verify a good install.

modparams.dat is simply an input file to the sys$update:autogen.com procedure. Changing it does nothing until you run autogen.

read https://sourceforge.net/p/vms-ports/wiki/SystemTuning/

Read the VMS System Managers guide for system tuning next.

@sys$update:autogen getdata setdata setparams

Examine the text file agen$params.report to make sure it has no issues.

If it does, re-edit the modparams.dat and re-run autogen

When you are satisfied, a reboot is usually required to pick up the changes unless only dynamic parameters are changed.

Guys. Thx. But this is not getting any further. I did edited modparams.dat. I did run autogen.
I typed the agen$params.report. The unused global pages remain at 110 - too low to install software..?

I do not want to become a system admin on vms (yet).
I just want to install some compilers and compile a few programs - that's it..

So some 3-5 command/steps that's get me there would really be appreciated..

Many thanks,
Peter
