DECwindows NODEVICE no graphics device?

» close window

The Question is:

I've installed vms 7.3-1 on an Alpha DS10 workstation and I'm getting the
 following error message at the end of the boot process:
%DECW$DEVICE-I-NODEVICE, no graphics devices found  and DECWindows does not
 start up.
Am I missing a driver for the graphics card??  If so, can this be downloaded
 from the HP website?  Or is it something else causing the problem?

The Answer is :

  Please review the discussion of this message in the OpenVMS FAQ; the
  materials there should provide an introduction to the general causes,
  as well as the associated remediations.
