ELF or not ELF

ELF or not ELF

Post by Chi-hsuan L » Wed, 24 Jan 1996 04:00:00

        My linux box is installed when Slackware is still 2.3xx with
a.out format excutables. I am comtemplating whether to switch to
Slackware 3.0 ELF format. Can anyone sumarrize what benefit will be to go
for it?
        I remember that several packages with Slaxkware 2.3xx is broken
like cnews. Is it fixed in the 3.0 release?
        One more thing is that I have compiled a lot of programs and
utilities on my linux box. Do I need to recompiled them? If so, is it
straight forward?
        Hmmm.. it seems I have poured too many questions at one time.
Maybe someone can give me some pointer or faq so that I can study myself.

Thanks for your help.

1. ELF interpreter ld-elf.so.1 not found????!!

What's going on?! I recently downloaded some packages but almost none of them
worked but gave "ELF interpreter ls-elf.so.1 not found" error message!

I have tried them on 2.2.2/2.2.5/2.2.6 and 3.0-SNAP(from August) -  all fail.

Doing a normal make in /usr/ports gets them running OK though.

Hints anyone?
