Hello

I would like to know which is the latest version of iBCS that
I can run under Linux 1.2.13? How do I find out what version
I have?

Do iBCS modules support all SCO binaries or do they support up
to a certain version?

Thanks

Allen

The archive name is of the form ibcs-X.Y-YYMMDD.tar.gz. The YYMMDD is the 
release date. The X.Y is the kernel release it works against (always the 
current patch level on the release date *not* arbitrary patch levels!). If 
it gives a development kernel it should also work against the current 
production kernel. So for a 1.2.13 kernel you need the latest ibcs-1.3 
archive from tsx-11.mit.edu:/pub/linux/BETA/ibcs2/.

AL> How do I find out what version I have?

If you don't have the archive look at README, RELEASE, ChangeLog etc. If you 
don't have those You'd be better off just getting the archive from tsx-11.

I don't think I even have a pre-SCO version in my CVS archive :-). SCO COFF 
binaries from 3.2.x through OpenServer 5.0.2 have been handled by iBCS for 
literally years. SCO ELF binaries from OpenServer 5 became supported late in 
the ibcs-1.3 series I think (shared libraries permitting).

  There are a few things known to be missing but no one seems to need them.
