Hi can anyone help with a bit of info ?

How compatible is Linux (any version) with SCO Unix 3.2 v 4.2 or SCO
Openserver V.

I have heard it is SOURCE compatible, but do binaries compiled using
the SCO dev system run under Linux ?

Thanks

Phil.

Yes, if you get the (misnamed*) iBCS module for Linux from tsx-11.mit.edu 
/pub/linux/BETA/ibcs2/ and any needed shared libraries from your old SCO 
system. (No, shared - and static - libraries are *not* portable between 
platforms even if they are the same binary format. The internals can be 
vastly different)

  * Misnamed because it doesn't do iBCS. It does SCO, Unixware, INTERACTIVE, 
SVR3, SVR4, Wyse V/386... One UNIX to rule them all, one UNIX to find them. 
One UNIX to bring them all, and on the PC run them. (Yeah, the paraphrasing 
is appalling. I write code, not poetry :-) )

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
