Hi All, I've an Alpha machine that has a problem that during a DEC Windows session the keyboard and mouse clicking won't work for a few minutes, and then again it will start working, back and forth. Has anyone had a similar problem? It's an Alphaserver 400 I'm using. Does anyone know as well are there any companies that fix Digital DEC machines in the UK?
Been away from OVMS - mixing concrete etc . - but if you have a separate console and keyboard, maybe, try to see what the system is 'doing' while things appear to be hung - show sys, mon proc/topcpu - set the window you are doing the monitoring from to a high priority, set proc/prio = 'n' (where n = 10 say, I think the 'swapper' runs at 16) Some process maybe 'gobbling up' resources.
- you may need to give yourself more privileges, to change priority.
