SCO Binarys ran in Slackware Linux 9.1?

Hi there. I am trying to instal BBX by Basis. However, the BBX I have is made for SCO Unix. I am wondering if there may be a program I could install into Slackware that will give me the ability to install/run SCO Binarys? Thanks for the help.

Well, install what program they depend on in SCO Unix to run in Slackware if possible.. other than that, I don't really know as I don't know what is needed or what they depend on.

You either need the source and compile it for Linux, or you need the correct version of SCO Unix. Even if you have the program source you will also need the SCO's specific libraries.

I thought SCO = Subterfuge, Convolution, & Obfuscation.
