pa-risc1.1 pa-risc2.0

What is the difference between
pa-risc1.1 pa-risc2.0? How can I tell which
one I have? I know my servers are not
Itanium processors.

Re: pa-risc1.1 pa-risc2.0

pa-risc1.1 and pa-risc2.0 are both PA-RISC CPUs.


Go to sam -> performance monitors -> system properties

result can be similar to this:

CPU Version: 1.1e PA7300

this is a PA-7300 CPU pa-risc1.1


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: pa-risc1.1 pa-risc2.0

It is a stepwise process to determine the PARISC architecture of the CPU unless you can code it in C. See the example below:

-- Determine the CPU version
# getconf CPU_VERSION
532

-- Convert above decimal value to hexadecimal
# echo 0d532=x | adb
214

-- Match hex value to PARISC version given in the unistd.h file
# grep 0x214 /usr/include/sys/unistd.h
# define CPU_PA_RISC2_0 0x214 /* HP PA-RISC2.0 */

So the above CPU is a PA-RISC 2.0

Yes, definitely. The PA in PA8700 gives it away.

Re: pa-risc1.1 pa-risc2.0

Wow Sandman, how did you figure that out?

Does ported versions of software for
PA-RISC 1.0 work with PA-RISC 2.0 ?

Thanks guys

Re: pa-risc1.1 pa-risc2.0

Look at the manpage of sysconf(2). The stepwise procedure was gleaned from that manpage. It has the information needed to classify the PA-RISC version of the processor.

I would say porting from PARISC 1.0 to PARISC 2.0 should not be a problem owing to backward compatibility but then again this is one of those questions that only HP can provide a definitive answer for.
