Utility to allow running linux binaries under SCO, but initial testing has been disappointing. Unsurprisingly, appears to hang on 64-bit binaries. Even simple 32-bit linux binaries seem to blow up. Note "Q3.1: What if I find a Linux binary that lxrun doesn't support?" here:
SCO-provided open source resources for OpenServer 5.0.7 are very dated. This sub-topic page aims to share information about how more recent resources may be built for use on this old platform.
A SCO OpenServer 5.0.7 sub-topic page covering a range of system administration topics like:
- Layout of filesystem
hw -vis much more informative
- Motherboard identification is possible, though it can take effort to differentiate it from chipset identifiers.
- Generate report on system configuration for diagnostic use
- Uses sockinfo, ss, lsof, memhog, cpuhog, and iohog if available in /usr/local/bin.
Identify installed software and components
Query system contents database; list file status; list software modifications
- Can help determine which Maintenance Pack is installed. For example:
customquery swconfig | grep Maint
- SCO OpenServer Release 5.0.7 Maintenance Pack 5 1.0.0Mc partially installed
- Alternatively, in cases where custom is non-functional, MP5 is likely installed when:
grep Maintenance /opt/K/SCO/Unix/rs507d.Unix507.1.0a/.softmgmt/shared.db
- description=rs507d - Operations\, Administration and Maintenance Patch
swconfig -Ponly displays applied patches.
