Hi,

I've installed the slackware distribution 1.2.0 which contains the Linux
kernel version 1.0. 

I want to run a couple of ELF executables of which I don't have any sources
available (a commercial product).

Now I've recompiled the kernel with the binary format ELF setting tuned to yes
using the configuration script. So I suppose concerning the kernel everything
is okay...

When I try to run a ELF executable I got an error message like : program not
found or something similar. 

If I installed some shared libraries from the elfabi package (from the SLS
distribution) I still couldn't get the ELF executable to run. Now it gives me
a Segmentation violation.

What did I do wrong ?

I searched through documentation on the cd-rom package (from info-magic) but
couldn't find any real documentation on HOW TO ELF ON LINUX ?

Please reply using e-mail because I'm currently at home and it's difficult to
go through all news articles. If I get any replies which give me a working
solution I will post a summary to the net...

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State
