SCO Foxbase+ 2.1.2 on Solaris X86 2.5.1

Post by Martin Spo » Mon, 25 Nov 1996 04:00:00

: [...] Have previously run it
: successfully under SVR4.2 variant (Information Foundation)
: but could not run it under Solaris. The 4.2 says its compatible
: with COFF and iBCSe2 (Intel Binary Compatibility Standard edition 2).

COFF/iBCS2 compatibility was added to SVR4 _after_ Sun bought a copy of the
source. You might try Solaris2.4 BaseServer which is told to be fully
compatible to SCO binaries, but doesn't come with any X11 support.

I really don't understand why SunSoft doesn't profit of owning Interactive
to add full COFF/iBCS2 compatibility to current releases of Solaris !!!


 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !


1. Using Foxbase with Xenix and SCO Unix

We have been having a lot of problems using Foxbase under Xenix over our
network.  Does anyone know if Fox will run better under SCO Unix?  Or do we
need to switch to something entirely different like Netware?
