VMS Alpha Console (VGA)
VMS 8.3, DS10L, Radeon 7500 card.
When DECW$SERVER crashes, the display returns to the VMS provided console.
(the one with the white-on black title at the bottom).
When this happen, the screen goes to a 720*400 resolution (or it may be
700*24) Definitely not 640*480.
Also, the monitor needs to be recalibrated because the "window" is
improperly positioned in the imagable area (aka: text is shiften to the
left and first column is not visible).

> VMS ...IDE drive in RX2600 under VMS
I've got an RX2600 I picked up at an IDF a while back. Given the
availability (finally, yay!) of hobbyist licenses, I'm about to get it
off the ground again.
I'm sure it's got an acceptable IDE controller in it, to run the DVD
drive. I was wondering, then, if adding an IDE hard drive (Yes, I
know- but it's a hobbyist box) could be done? Anyone tried?

Slightly off topic anyway.
I have a need for a console monitor for VMS that will monitor messages
that do not become part of the system message log. I know there are
other VMS users on the list so I thought I would throw this out here.

Is McAfee a good software to HP's eyes, or should I remove it and put
bad old standard Norton back on my HP laptop?

I have an rx2600 (dual 1.4GHz/1.5MB CPUs) which has been happily running
VMS for several years. It's at 8.3 with VMS83I_UPDATE4 and VMS83I_SYS4
(along with a few other) patches installed. It's running Oracle 10.2.0.2
server as its only application.
This morning at around 4am it "stopped cold". No crash dump, no errors
in the system error log, nothing untoward in the OPERATOR log, no error
messages on the console. The other cluster nodes simply report losing
communication to it at that time.
Unfortunately in the heat of the moment to get it going again this
morning I d...VMS VGA console sync problem

During the booting process, VMS seems to replace the VGA support. The
screen is "redrawn" and a new font applied.
Normally, one doesn't place much attention to this since once DECW starts,
this temporary console mode goes away.
However, the problem becomes visible if you crash DECW and the dispay
reverts to that console mode and you start to use it (in VT52 mode).

I'm reading the AoA by Randy Hyde. In the chapter called
"IntegerArithmetic" he has a program called "testRandom" that illustrates
the use of the rand.range and rand.urange functions. What this program
does is prints a number of asterisks on your screen in a random pattern.
I thought I'd go ahead and run the program just to see what it looks like.
The code didn't seem very difficult.
However, I cannot compile the program. When I try I get the following

The recent thread about getting back to SRM from alphabios on the

I have only serial lines connected to my two PWS 600au machines, which
feed into a decserver. There is no graphics monitor.
