Description Don Beusee 1999-06-18 17:38:50 UTC
I have solemu installed, which seems to be the latest iBCS package, yet I cannot run any solaris programs. Most of them simply say 'killed'. Running strace on any solaris program shows only this: execve("/usr/local/bin/calc", ["calc"], [/* 69 vars */]) = 0 syscall: SunOS no support Reading /usr/doc/solemul-1.1/README indicates I should do: insmod solaris but where is this module? The solemul package does not contain any 'modules'. The README file also says: (assuming you have the Solaris kernel module compiled - see kernel documentation how to do that) but I cannot find any such documentation. And anyway, shouldn't installing solemul be enough?

Why was this bug marked resolved, and with no comments? I did not receive any answer to this and I've been waiting a long time!!
Comment 2 Don Beusee 2000-03-07 10:21:59 UTC
Happens with 6.1 also. Setting version to 6.1.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2000-03-07 12:05:59 UTC
It's not enough to just install the solemul package, as you will also need to add solaris libraries. The solaris module resides in /lib/modules/*/misc/solaris.o, and appears not to be present in the 6.1 (or 6.2) kernel package.

From firstname.lastname@example.org: Date: Tue, 7 Mar 2000 07:15:02 -0500 From: Jeff Johnson <email@example.com> I just noticed that the 6.2 kernel has not the solaris module needed by solemul. Oversight or non-functional? It's not fully functional so we really don't want to include support for it. However we do want to keep the solemu rpm around so that when it is functional, the distribution level infrastructure is already there waiting for it. Changing component to kernel because that's where the fix will be.

How about marking this DEFERRED?
Comment 6 Ben LaHaise 2002-06-03 21:36:21 UTC
This is unlikely to get fixed as SPARC releases are no longer being made.
