I'm not aware of any free/open-source project that emulates ALPHA on
PC ... there's two commercial products I've heard of, but I can't
recall their names. Did you try googling for "ALPHA 64bit emulator"?


Cheers,
Tink

i think that you are meaning CHARON AXP and REVIVER-ALPHA
i have downloaded charon but can't reach to REVIVER-ALPHA trial version.

1. Tru64 is designed to run on Alpha systems. Considering QEMU support of different platforms I find out that Tru64 is not supported. See here http://www.claunia.com/qemu/index.php?case=1


2. the same reason is with solaris sparc. I don't find any reason to run solaris compiled to run on sparc emulated on PC hardware...

To run Tru64 I will try CHARON-AXP or REVIVE-ALPHA.

Yes, As I told before. VIRTUAL SIMICS works fine. There is enough manuals in their documentations. however it is not free.
