Hi there !

I need to have an HP-UX dev platform, but don't know what is needed...
The only servers I can use are : x86 and SUN SPARC... Is it possible to install HP UX on one of these machines ?
If it's possible, do you know if I can get free eval versions of HP-UX ? Or do I need to buy it ?

Thanks for you answer.

Unfortunately HP-UX only runs on HP hardware (PA-RISC and Itanium processors); And I think you have to buy the media sets.

You should be able to pick up an HP workstation from ebay or a second-hand dealer for a reasonable price, including a media set.

Though if you bought an HP Itanium Superdome, you could also run Solaris and Windows on it ;-)
