Binary Compatibility

Post by Gregoire Mei » Fri, 27 Oct 1995 04:00:00


I need a list of SunOS4.1.x applications which give problems when
running under Solaris 2.x.
Does anybody know if this list exists ???
If anyone already had problems with a SunOS4.1.x application
running with the Binary Compatibility under Solaris 2.x, please




1. Failed to execute binary (UML); binary compatibility broken?


I've tried to run some specific executable in 2.5.67. This
executable worked fine with earlier[1] 2.5.x and 2.4.x kernels,
but it refuses to run with 2.5.67. I thought that it's temporary
problem and waited to 2.5.68 in hope, that it will be fixed.
But it won't work with 2.5.68 either.

[1] I did not test it on every earlier kernel. It have
    stopped working somewhere in 2.5.6x series.

This binary is old Linux version 2.4.18-19um as UML executable.
It produces:

Details of my host system setup are here:

If I understand correctly, UML binary is ordinary executable.
So if it is unable to start, evidently something very important
is broken.

UML's kernel config attached.

Please CC me.
