The GNV Project implements a port of the GNU utilities to OpenVMS with the intent of providing a framework for porting open source software to OpenVMS. A complementary SourceForge Project is VMS-Ports (https://sourceforge.net/projects/vms-ports/), there are discussions of process and procedure there as well as regular conference calls with recordings to review progress and assess how to improve the environment.

For the most up to date version of GNV please download the base GNV kit from the FILES section of this project. As of February 2016 this was V3.0.1 and was available for both I64 and AXP architectures. VSI has provided a version of GNV 3.0.2 which will ONLY install on VSI OpenVMS.

Once you have GNV installed you MUST then download and install the additional kits under FILES for the most up to date copies of the utilities, these included:

* bash
* coreutils
* gawk
* grep
* sed
* ld_tools
* ar_tools
* make

User Reviews

  • Gnv is excellent! Thanks.

  • As native VMS is a bit different from *ix, having a unixy build environment is very useful to port software.
