HP OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.3--2 Release Notes
$ MOUNT ddcu: FREEWARE60_1 $ TYPE DISK$FREEWARE60_1:[FREEWARE]FREEWARE_README.TXT
Freeware Volume 2:
$ MOUNT ddcu: FREEWARE60_2 $ TYPE DISK$FREEWARE60_2:[FREEWARE]FREEWARE_README.TXT
In these MOUNT commands, the ddcu: specification represents the device name of the CD-ROM device on your OpenVMS system.
If you do not know the name of the CD-ROM device on your system, use the following command to find out:
$ PIPE SHOW DEV DK/FULL | SEARCH SYS$INPUT RRD
Once the appropriate CD-ROM disk is mounted, you can access the kit directories directly using standard DCL commands such as DIRECTORY, or you can use the following command to display the Freeware menu for the volume.
In OpenVMS Version 7.3, four traditional online help topic names were changed to distinguish them from new, similar topic names. Since then, the OpenVMS Librarian has been modified so that online help can distinguish an independent topic name that matches the beginning of another topic name. Because of this change, these four topic names have been changed back to their original, shorter names. The following table shows the name changes and lists the names of the help topics for related routines.
|Topic Name in
|Topic Name in V7.3-2
and Prior to V7.3
|Related Routine Topic Name|
Note that you must enter the entire name of these shortened help topics
to distinguish them from the longer topic names for the related
routines. If you do not enter the full topic name, the help Librarian
cannot distinguish the shortcut for the command from the related
routine. To specify help for the routine, you must enter the beginning
of the topic name up through (and including) the underscore character.
3.3 COPY Command Performance
To improve the performance of copy operations, the default I/O size used by the COPY command has been increased from 64 blocks to 127 blocks. This change results in a significant reduction of both I/O and CPU time required for copy operations to complete.
Users with very low PGFLQUOTA might experience RMS$_DME errors as RMS
allocates its buffers. To overcome this problem, try increasing the
size of PGFLQUOTA.
3.4 ATI RADEON 7500 Graphics
Support for ATI RADEON 7500 Graphics is included in this release. Refer
to the HP OpenVMS Alpha Version 7.3--2 New Features and Documentation Overview manual for a description of the features supported
in OpenVMS Version 7.3-2 and read the release notes in Section 6.9.
3.5 HP Secure Web Browser: Increased Memory Required
If you have an OpenVMS workstation and you are using the HP Secure Web Browser (SWB), based on Mozilla, the minimum memory requirement is 128 MB; however, 256 MB is highly recommended for more robust performance.
