OpenVMS VMS731_GRAPHICS-V0200 ATI RADEON 7500 Graphics adapter ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS731_GRAPHICS-V0200 ATI RADEON 7500 Graphics adapter ECO Summary
 
NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
 
       For OpenVMS savesets, the name of the compressed saveset
       file will be kit_name.a-dcx_vaxexe for OpenVMS VAX or
       kit_name.a-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha. Once the OpenVMS
       saveset is copied to your system, expand the compressed
       saveset by typing RUN kitname.dcx_vaxexe or kitname.dcx_alpexe.
 
       For PCSI files, once the PCSI file is copied to your system,
       rename the PCSI file to kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or
       kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe, then it can be expanded by typing
       RUN kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe.  The
       resultant file will be the PCSI installation file which can be
       used to install the ECO.

     o  PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN VMS731_GRAPHICS-V0200 KIT

        The system could crash when the DECWindows server is started.
        Typically,the crash is an INVEXCEPTN BUGCHECK @SYS$GHDRIVER+n
        where n is one of several different possible address offsets.

        Also, the system can hang if SYSTEM_CHECK or POOLCHECK is set
        to 1.

        Images Affected: [SYS$LDR]SYS$GHDRIVER.EXE (new image)



NEW FUNCTIONALITY INTRODUCED IN THE VMS731_GRAPHICS-V0100 KIT


     o  This kit contains the 2D and 3D graphics software to support
        the ATI RADEON 7500 AGP and PCI graphics cards on OpenVMS
        Alpha Version 7.3-1.  The part numbers are as follows:

                     AGP card: 3X-PBXGG-AB
                     PCI card: 3X-PBXGG-AA
                     Open3D license: QL-0ADA9-AA

                            *** NOTE ***
                   
        This kit ships with full support for the AGP card; the PCI
        card is still being tested.  When PCI qualification is
        completed, it will be announced on the "What's New" website.
        You can reach this by clicking on "what's new on our site" on
        the following webpage:

                     http://www.hp.com/go/openvms

        Currently, the PCI card is supported on the AlphaServer DS10.
        Support on other platforms will be announced as they are
        tested.  For updates on support for the AGP and PCI cards,
        refer to the QuickSpecs webpage at:

          http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/Division/10410.html

        Full release notes for the ATI RADEON 7500 Graphics Support
        are supplied in HTML, PDF, and text format and are located in
        the SYS$HELP directory after this software kit is installed:

               RADEON_7500_V1_README.HTML
               RADEON_7500_V1_README_CONTENTS.HTML
               RADEON_7500_V1_README.PDF
               RADEON_7500_V1_README.TXT


INSTALLATION NOTES:

This kit requires a system reboot.  HP strongly recommends that a
reboot is performed immediately after kit installation to avoid
system instability

If you have other nodes in your OpenVMS cluster, they must also be
rebooted in order to make use of the new image(s).  If it is not
possible or convenient to reboot the entire cluster at this time, a
rolling re-boot may be performed.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

Install this kit with the POLYCENTER Software installation utility
by logging into the SYSTEM account, and typing the following at the
DCL prompt:

   PRODUCT INSTALL VMS731_GRAPHICS /SOURCE=[location of Kit]

The kit location may be a tape drive, CD, or a disk directory that
contains the kit.

Additional help on installing PCSI kits can be found by typing
   HELP PRODUCT INSTALL at the system prompt


Special Installation Instructions:

     o  Scripting of Answers to Installation Questions

                    During installation, this kit will ask and require user
          response to several questions.  If you wish to automate the
          installation of this kit and avoid having to provide responses
          to these questions, you must create a DCL command procedure
          that includes the following definitions and commands:

           -  $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE

           -  $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE

           -  Add the following qualifiers to the PRODUCT INSTALL
              command and add that command to the DCL procedure.

                /PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V2.0


           -  De-assign the logicals assigned

          For example, a sample command file to install the
          VMS731_GRAPHICS-V0200 kit would be:

          $
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE
          $!
          $ PROD INSTALL VMS731_GRAPHICS/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=2.0
          $!
          $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
          $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT
          $!
          $ exit
