Can Linux run SCO 3.2 binaries?

Can Linux run binaries from other 386 based Unices?  In particular,
can it run programs for SCO 3.2 under X-windows?

NO.
Some people are working (I think) on the COFF (Common Object File Format) for
Linux.  If the SCO programs were linked as COFF format, someday, maybe.
SCO 3.2 runs X11R3 - unless they've changed that or you've upgraded -.
This may present another problem as XF86-2.0 will not run as an R3 server without
changes made to the binaries. (don't ask me!)

They are.  In fact Coherent supports a bigger chunk of SCO binaries now
because of their improved COFF/SCO support.  COFF by itself is not
enough, as it must support the SCO/SVR3 system calls also.

No SCO 3.2 now runs X11R4 and includes support for both R4 & R3 stuff.
You can also run Xfree 2.0 under SCO if you want.  I run both myself.

I use XFree86 2.0 on SCO Unix, and some other people in my office use
Metrolink's X-server. Both are capable of running statically linked programs
compiled for ODT.

1. SCO Unix 3.2 binaries

Hi,

        Is there a site that I can download SCO 3.2(.4) binaries from?
I'm looking for things like less, etc.  I'd like to compile them myself
but our vender saw to it that we didn't get the /usr/include and
/usr/lib files that I need to support the gcc compiler that I got
from SCO's Skunkware site.  Better yet, can somebody direct me to
a site that's running SCO 3.2 so I can get the include and lib
directories?  That would be preferable.  Then I could compile my own
binaries.

Any Help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance
