    How to execute a "80386 COFF executable not stripped&qu


    Hello,

    I have installed a vers. 10.0. I also have some old software (from SCO SVR4), I haven't the source code, only the executable.

    When I try to execute the software the respond is

    -bash: program_name: cannot execute binary file.

    I remember in the Red Hat vers. 6 there was a module called "ibcs", something like that, to execute the software.

    I don't know if I have explained well my problem.

    If somebody can help, many thanks

    Juan

    What architecture does SCO run on?? If it's not compiled for the same arch then you'll get trouble. Plus things like dependencies/libraries may be missing.

    Does Linux support running Sco apps?
