Hi,
in order to run some SCO binary on Linux 2.1.1xx, I'm trying to
re-animate iBCS. The versions I found seem to be rather old, and I found
a hint somewhere that iBCS is discontinued by its original authors...

Anybody else working on this, so we could combine efforts? I have no
idea what really is done inside iBCS, at least up to now. I try to
compile, and fix where the compiler gives me errors. This will probably
lead to a module that can be loaded, but will not work at all :-(.

If somebody is further than I am, or working on this as well, please
respond either here or by email.

Regards,
Jens

No it isn't. The current release is on tsx-11.mit.edu under
/pub/linux/BETA/ibcs/ and works with 2.0 kernels. There are
some patches on ftp.yggdrasil.com under /private/adam which
seem to make iBCS work with 2.1 kernels. New releases of iBCS
are in the pipeline.

 Mike,
thanks for the pointer. I hate to re-invent the wheel :-)

1. Wanted: a copy of the ibcs patched 1.0 kernel and ibcs module

 have already spent to much time on trying to correctly patch the 1.0
kernel for SCO comaptibility without success. I want to install the
SCO WordPerfect. If anybody is willing to send me a copy of the patched
kernel (preferable Slackware) and the insmod ibcs module I will pay the costs
involved.  My home address for a disk is 150 Mosher Road, Delmar, NY 12054
Thanks, Donald Parsons
