HP Services Software Patches - alpcpu0d01_061
NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
       The name of the compressed file will be kit_name-dcx_vaxexe
       for OpenVMS VAX or kit_name-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha.
       Once the file is copied to your system, it can be expanded
       by typing RUN compressed_file.  The resultant file will
       be the OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file which
       can be used to install the ECO.

Problems addressed in the ALPCPU0D01_061 ECO Kit:

  o  The previous kit (ALPCPU02_062) applied to V6.1 as well as to
     V6.2.  That kit is being re-issued as two kits, one for each 
     version.  This kit is the OpenVMS V6.1 portion of the kit.

     This kit has no new fixes.  If you have installed the
     ALPCPU02_062 remedial kit on V6.1, you do not need to install
     this kit.

There were no fixes in the ALPCPU02_062 kit specifically for OpenVMS 
Alpha V6.1-1H1 or V6.1-1H2. 

Problems addressed in the ALPCPU01_062 ECO Kit for OpenVMS Alpha
