I was going through my backup DVDs when I found an ISO file for OpenVMS/VAX 7.3, no doubt left over from some earlier period of hobbyist exploration. As I'm trying to learn more about large systems, I decided to give it another whirl and renewed my licenses. Unfortnantly, the ISO I had around contains only a small amount of "extra" stuff: DECWindows, Motif, TCP/IP, Kerberos, DCE and DECnet. Where can I find stuff like programming languages and stuff? MACRO is too low-level for me at the moment, and the only other easy-to find language seems to BLISS, which isn't exactly a well-documented language. I plan to get a media kit when I can get the money together, but given my student status, that might be a while...

Also, there's gads of layered products for which PAKs are issued but which aren't listed as part of the hobby media kit? What if I wanted to try to use DEC Write (assuming, of course, I can get X11 working)?

Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

Thanks for the info. I was planning on getting an actual hobbyist distro at some point when I have the $30 to spend. As a college student, I don't often have money around, especially not during breaks when I don't even have my job at my school's campus center to fall back on as a funding source. I was just wondering if there was a way to get a bit of a head start. Clearly it seems like there's not, so I'll just have to forego a night out during the semester or something to get that kit.

Thanks for the welcome.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
