Downloading and installing the libraries is required, but I can't tell for sure if that's sufficient. > I guess I was kind of thinking, and I hate to use the analagy, of DLLs. > Being able to go and find one of these libraries, install it into my Linux > compat/lib directory and then run the application. Try it. It may require brandelf'ing those libraries. I once tried linux emulation, but shortly after I found everything I needed was also ported to FreeBSD to run natively, so I stopped using it. > 0x00000001 (NEEDED) Shared library: [libmanylibshere] One other concern is that you may need to readelf the newly downloaded libraries too, as they may reference other libraries not in your list yet. -- DoubleF Too much of everything is just enough. -- Bob Wier
