Thanks for the replies.

The question is if it's possible to compile Linux for Itanium yo be big endian system ?

It would be _possible_ - you have the source, after all - but there would be a lot of work to do. It will almost certainly be easier to just fix your software so that it doesn't depend on the computer's endianness. If even that is too difficult, it's probably easier to just install HP-UX on your system and use that. As I understand it, all HP Itanium systems are sold with licenses to use HP-UX, so it's just a question of getting your hands on HP-UX installation media (try ebay?), you don't need to "buy" the HP-UX software itself.
