FreeBSD compatibility of our linux apps
« on: 07 Apr 2009, 06:36:45 pm »
About two weeks ago there was a question whether there would be optimized apps for FreeBSD.

Today I was reading http://linux.slashdot.org about Debian getting FreeBSD kernel support and saw this and this posts saying that FreeBSD can run linux binaries natively.

In http://www.freebsd.org I've found the corresponding documentation about this binary compatibility and how to enable it (says it is off by default).

So unless there will be native FreeBSD apps, FreeBSD users can try this and see if it works.

Note: It says that: "Linux binaries will not work on FreeBSD if they overly use i386 specific calls, such as enabling virtual 8086 mode". I hope it doesn't happen in optimized apps.  :)
