Dear Andrew and Ralph,

In order that Ralph's Call For Volunteers receives as wide an audience as possible, I'm forwarding this message to tech-talk (apologies to the core-talk folks who've already seen it once). If your site expects to need to run EPICS R3.14.9 on HP-UX, you should have someone step up now or we may have to drop HP-UX from the list of architectures officially supported by EPICS.


Are we the only HP-UX EPICS users on the planet?! I'll look into our resource, but maybe we don't need newer versions of EPICS on HP-UX. So... At KEKB, although I keep two HP-UX machines for some reason and I have installed R3.14.8.2, the versions of HP-UXen are V10.20 and V11.0 ... They are old and normally run R3.13 clients.

Instead, we may be interested in keeping Tru64 and FreeBSD. Our main client platforms are Darwin and Tru64. We will re-
introduce Linux machines again, partially to replace HP-UX. Other facilities like Linac, Photon-Factory and J-PARC are using Linux as the main EPICS clients.


FYI, R3.14.8.2 on HP-UX V11.0 mostly works for me. Somehow, startup/EpicsHostArch.pl did not work. Other than that, I simply modified SHRLIB_SEARCH_FULLPATHDIRS in CONFIG_SITE.Common.hpux-parisc, and it worked. Thanks to Ralph!!

You aren't the sole EPICS users of HP-UX. At the JLab accelerator we continue to use HP-UX as our principal development and console environment. We are early in our migration to linux. After we get better clarity on our FY07 budget from the DOE we'll know what the path forward looks like. We need to evaluate whether we want to commit to supporting 3.14.9 and later on HP-UX.
