XPDF on OpenVMS / Itanium ?

Has anyone built a binary of XPDF for OpenVMS / Itanium ?

XPDF 3.02 built by Chip Coldwell crashes on OpenVMS / Itanium 8.3-1H1 and I have not found any other binary.

Re: XPDF on OpenVMS / Itanium ?

I appear still to be using "xpdf version
2.02pl1" on my Alpha system, but if I were
interested in investigating this problem,
I'd expect to get some useful info from the
problem report, like:

> XPDF 3.02 built by Chip Coldwell [...]

Obtained whence?

[...] crashes [...]

Did what, exactly, when you did what,
exactly?

Thierry(?),

I have built upon Chip's distribution and put together a PCSI kit, first on Alpha, then on Integrity. I'll put them up for download tomorrow as soon as I'm back at work.

The PCSI kit for Alpha can be downloaded from:

http://frank.harvard.edu/~coldwell/vms/xpdf.html

The PCSI kit for Itanium has been retired but I can give it to you. Not very usefull (no sources, no build procedures).

When I launch XPDF, the main window briefly appears and then the exe crashes. I have not investigated more because without possibility of debugging...

Re: XPDF on OpenVMS / Itanium ?

Kit(s) are downloadable now:

http://de.OpenVMS.org/software-download/I64-XPDF-V0302-KITS.ZIP

This works on my 8.3-1H1 system.

If you don't have Ghostscript installed, you will also want

http://de.OpenVMS.org/software-download/VMS-GHOSTSCRIPT_FONTS-V0811.ZIP

The sources from which these were built are available from

http://de.OpenVMS.org/software-download/XPDF-V0302-SRC.ZIP

These are essentially Chip's source files, with PL2 installed, and slightly modified to build on Integrity and Alpha.

The Alpha kits are

Re: XPDF on OpenVMS / Itanium ?

On request, I have built a kit for OpenVMS I64 V8.3, available under

http://de.openvms.org/software-download/I64VMS-V83-XPDF-V0302-KITS.ZIP

The I64 V8.3-1H1 kit is now named

http://de.openvms.org/software-download/I64VMS-V831H1-XPDF-V0302-KITS.ZIP

(I doubt that the filename mentioned above worked for a long time - I apologize for the confusion).

The kit for OpenVMS Alpha V8.3, the GhostScript fonts kit and the source kit mentioned above are also available.

Another way to access all of them is with anonymous FTP to ftp.pdv-systeme.de in the vms directory.

cu,
Martin
