Linux A.B.I. December 10, 2009

Posted by endare in Kernel.

The ABI is a patch to the kernel that allows you to run SCO, Xenix, Solaris ix86 binaries on Linux. Excellent for porting software for Linux! The latest version is stable, previous versions however are not as reliable. This patch must be used with a ‘vanilla’ kernel [i.e. from http://www.kernel.org NOT a distro kernel] However various distro’s (e.g. Redhat) distribute kernels with the ABI included. Check that it is the latest version though (if you are using a 2.4.18+ kernel then it probably is, otherwise it may not be) N.B. Latest RH kernel Updates (and RH8/9) do not contain the A.B.I.
