Hi Jerry,

please do not flood the different mailing lists with copies of the same

The binary files (grass5.beta6/7_linuxbin.tar.gz) are platform and
operating-system specific. The linux binary from the hannover server is
for Linux on Intel x86 architecture only. I don't know if a alpha-linux
binary will be released in the near future. If you want to install
grass5 now you must get the source file (grass5.0beta7.tar.gz), unpack
it and compile it. 

You did'nt tell which operating system you run on the Compaq Alpha
Server (Linux? Digital Unix, TrueUnix?). You need a compiler (gcc/egcs)
to build grass5 from the sources. I don't know if someone successfully
compiled grass5 with the native compiler for TrueUnix etc.
