J6000 servers with HPUnix 10.2 OS

I was wondering if someone has the recommended patches for a fresh install of HPunix 10.2 on a J6000 Server?  We will be running one application with the following scripting languages and protocols: ksh, csh, ftp , NFS, Xdmcp, and telnet.  And I wonder if it is possible to get the original C/C++ ansi compiler for 10.2 with Motif 1.0 to 1.2?

Regards and Thanks,

Your machine and it's system are nearly 20 years old.

Print out this page and hang on the wall:

And get some modern system to keep old machine in company museum:

I will check out NetBSD; however, the white pages and the migration cook books I could not find.

If you have tape of HP-UX 10.30 go for it, if not, there are problems preventing older systems from running after Y2K.

Modern XDMCP is called spice or freenx, and telnet and ftp are under hood of SSH....
As much as NetBSD is concerned you can do some target practice installing it on a desktop virtual machine with amd64 version.

Thanks.

We have two major pieces of software to move over.  We have the installations software (Client-Server application and Data Reduction Application) for both, and we have the full source code for the main application (Data Reduction Application).  The main application needs some the functionality of the other.

When I had time I was trying to Compile the application on Fedora-64bit but I had to install some Open source "Motif" libraries and there are some Syntax differences between Version 1 to Version 2 and there is where I stopped so far. But NetBSD seems to have the Motif already installed which will help if I need to set-up new systems as we progress.

In fedora or centos that will be openmotif
Dont say it is open source, vendor supplied source, thats it.
32bit might be better than 64bit for compilation (Look at CentOS 6 32bit) (e.g. int || 0xffffffff)
HP-PA might be better too for register layout more like PA-RISC (e.g. int32|| 0xffff0000)
In addition try alternative compilers to gcc
Centos: pcc is of age of your machines, clang may remember old C better
NetBSD PA-RISC: tendra is another relic from stone ages

I have Centos Installed on a virtual machine. Tomorrow I can check the version.  I have been using gcc.  I will check out the PCC and clang.
