I have NetBSD on my 164LX, but Tru64 seems “more appropriate.”
I’d love to have some actual Alpha hardware to play with. Shipping to NL is impossible or way too much cost sadly…
Does your box look like this one: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=54566 ?
At the start of the millenium I picked up an AlphaStation that was being decommissioned by a customer and installed OpenBSD on it. It was kinda fun. The machine made a noise not unlike a jet engine when powered on.
Yes, that’s the board, though I put it in a very sexy Nanoxia black case and custom printed Alpha stickers for it. It’s my “pimp box.” Goes well with the fire-engine red SGI Fuel next to it.
