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.

		       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.
