Running Solaris Binaries
Well, I've managed to get Debian running on a sparc for the first time.
A round of thanks to those who have put so much time and effort into
Not content with this first feat, I am now attempting to execute solaris
binaries on my sparc.
I downloaded the iBCS package, which failed to compile.
I then retried with the original sources. After minor tweaking of the
"#includes" and makefiles, I managed to get iBCS to compile.
However, I could not install the module into the kernel. After the
usual round of "depmod -a", the module complained of one unresolved
symbol: do_sigsuspend. looking at the system map, and doing an "nm" on the
module, I've concluded that this symbol is in both the kernel and the
Trying to push things, I removed the two references to do_sigsuspend from
the module. It then compiled cleanly, and I was able to install it.
The logs files state something like "iBCS module registered at 0x30".
I made the necessary devices in /dev/, and put the appropriate libraries
in /usr/gnemul/usr/lib/, and tried to execute a simple solaris binary
(compress) (the file is executable). All I get is:
bash: ./compress: No such file or directory
Where have I gone wrong?
The following libraries have been installed:
lambic# ls /usr/gnemul/solaris/usr/lib/
libc.so libc2.so libc2stubs.so libdl.so
libintl.so libw.so ld.so
libc.so.1 libc2.so.1 libc2stubs.so.1 libdl.so.1
