ABI patch and SCO a.out
some background: 20 years of SCO, 1 month of Linux
(it's about time eh!)
I have succesfully managed to patched linux 2.4.20 with abi 2.4.20 to get my 286/386 SCO a.out execs to run.
So far so good.
My old text based SCO programs (3rd party) which ARE executing under Linux are having problems getting directory listings as only every other directory entry shows up in the open-file dialogs.
If I'm not mistaken, the code (I believe filefirst/filenext or something along those lines) that gets the directory information has been compiled into the executable, so a work-around is somewhat limited.
Any ideas as to what I can try?
I though of creating a HTFS filesys just for these programs but I don't think Linux supports it (cfdisk does not have an entry for HTFS).
Am I up sh..ts creak?
