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,
