DEC UNIX Kernels
Posted on 1997-12-05
I am seriously thinking about building myself an alpha
I only use NT on intel now, and primarily for 3D graphics
anyways...When installing UNIX on an alpha computer, do you
not need to recompile the kernel to your specific hardware
configuration? I'm used to the Linux way of doing things, and am a bit confused as to how it werks. When you buy an alpha straight from DEC, they pre-install UNIX on there for ya, and say that you'ld better back it up if yer gonna get rid of it. I don't think DEC supplys source code for doing
such things either.
Can you explain the framework to installing UNIX on a DEC alpha?
