Description Brent R Brian 1999-11-17 13:35:55 UTC
SCO static binary, Business Basic, Basis Intl.

Runs fine under emulation RH 5.2, and runs on RH 6.1
(if installed as an upgraded from 5.2).

Failure occurs under a FRESH INSTALL of RH 6.1 with a

	"segmentation violation"

I have installed kernel-ibcs and re-'make'd the file, but
I get compile errors until x286 is turned off.  After a
successful compile I get the same thing.

Comment 1 Brent R Brian 1999-11-30 13:42:59 UTC
I did a fresh install of 5.2, iBCS worked well.
Rebuilt the kernel (pentium on, math emul off), still worked.
I upgraded 5.2 -> 6.1, iBCS still worked well.
I did a fresh install of 6.1, iBCS gives segmentation violation.
I RPM'd the kernel-ibcs source, followed the 'make' instructions,
  it still did not work.
Rebuilt the kernel, (pentium on, math emul off), still did not work.
I have compared the MAKEDEV.ibcs, they are the same.

Can I check anything else to help things along ??


Comment 2 Brent R Brian 1999-12-15 15:39:59 UTC
I found the following error during the compile of iBCS

binfmt_elf.c >> line 502: <<


too many arguments.  The rest of the code uses a single
argument (filename).
