Port Status

Compaq Tru64 UNIX is a Tier 2 Port

Verified Releases

Coming soon.

Testing Details

We build and test the Tru64 UNIX port on a system with the following specifications:

  • Alpha EV67-based host
  • Compaq Tru64 UNIX 5.1b
  • GNU gcc v4.7.7
  • GNU autoconf 2.71
  • GNU automake 1.16.4

This port should theoretically run on DEC OSF/1 or Digital UNIX, given a compatible GNU toolchain, but we do not have the resources to test such configurations.

Required Kernel Tuning

For the default daemon configuration, you will need a kernel shm_max parameter of at least 4205344. We recommend 6000000.

To apply an shm_max of 6000000, you will need to do the following:

  • Gain root privileges on your system
  • Create a file called "pstanza" with the following data:
    shm_max = 6000000
  • Run the following command:
# sysconfigdb -a -f pstanza ipc
  • Reboot the system
