I would like to install linkage 5.1 and fastlink on OpenVMS AXP V6.1 and/or on 
OSF/1. So I downloaded the versions from the requiered ftp sites (problems 
with corona, saying that user anonymous is unknown...). 

For the linkage packet there is a version for VMS and a version for Sun. 

I tried to install the VMS version on OpenVMS AXP but had problems with the 
UIP part of the packet, especially with LCP and LLB, e.g. with a routine 
called getc.mar (in: uip.lcp.src, seems to be a routine written in assembler 
for VMS and not running under VMS AXP). 

So I tried to install the Sun version on OSF/1, but had similar problems. 

Please, is there anyone out there having installed the UIP part successfully 
on OpenVMS AXP or on OSF/1 (DEC Alpha) and could give me a hint? It would be 

The fastlink version runs under OSF/1 without a problem but it would be nice 
to use the LINKAGE auxiliary programs (lcp, lrp, preplink etc.) too. 

Thank you very much in advance,
