Based on the vague reference at
and what I know of VMS and DEC hardware, I'd think that RTEM-11 would
require a VAX processor with "compatibility mode", i.e., a "VAX-11"
processor. The primary models would be the 11/78x, 11/750, 11/730 and
11/725 (I don't recall if the VAX 86xx still had "compatibility mode"
or not, but it should be easy to check). MicroVAXen and such did not
have it, and Alpha processors certainly did not have it.
That being said, I have no experience with RTEM-11, but I would be
surprised to learn it ran on a machine made after about 1986 or so.
