Which patches, ECOs, updates, fixes needed?

» close window

The Question is:

What is the latest patch set for 7.2-1 release of Openvms for Alpha? Also, what
 patch is needed for the EWA0 Graphics console device for Openvms 7.2-1?

The Answer is :

  Please review the information on patches that is available in the FAQ.
  (The OpenVMS Wizard quite deliberately does not post the current list
  of ECOs here, as it will almost certainly be quickly outdated -- the
  search tools and related pointers in the FAQ will provide the most
  current information.)
  OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-2 and V7.3-1 would be the prefered releases, as
  of this writing.  Information and pointes to Prior Version Support
  (PVS) and on Standard Version Support are included in the FAQ, too.
  The EW device prefix is assigned to network devices, and not to
  graphics devices.
  The FAQ also has some information on recent graphics controller ECO
  kits, as well -- but without specific information on the graphics
  controller involved, a direct answer -- beyond a simple reference
  to an available UPDATE or GRAPHICS ECO kit or an upgrade to a more
  current release -- is difficult.
  The OpenVMS Wizard recommends use of (and searches of) the text-format
  version of the OpenVMS FAQ.  Other file formats are more difficult to
