New yes it is :-(
its how its currently done now, the next release will simply polish and make the thing more transparent.
on a linux with a recent build do file /bin/ls, do the same on a solaris x86 ver 10, they are identical but id you do an ldd on both they are looking for different libraries. lxrun then LAE simply does the library management so that any binary will find the needed libraries to run.

LAE is more a toy since you can grab any source, do a configure, make, make install natively in Solaris or in linux if you use the zone concept and put a native linux os under the solaris install. If you dont have the source and the binary is a must have program, the LAE will supply the needed libraries to keep on trucking.

I am just parroting info here so YMMV
thanx,
bill

New Not according to Sun
lxrun is the original script... LAE is supposed to be kernel-level support, not a script. IE, you won't have to do "lxrun /some/linux/program", you can just run it directly.

New " LAE is supposed to be kernel-level support"
That support is already there, the binaries are identical, just that the libraries have different names. If you have a program with statically linked libs it runs fine. When you have dynamic shared libs specified it needs to find the correctly named one.
thanx,

Solaris 10 includes LXRun, which lets Linux users run Linux binaries. Also, says Ratcliffe, "We are working on a Linux application environment, scheduled for later this year, that will let Solaris 10 users run Linux apps natively, side-by-side with Solaris applications. For Windows users, we're including a WINE emulator."


Sounds like two different things to me. lxrun already does dynamic linking.

New Moot point until they release LAE anyways.
I'm not having a lot of luck with lxrun. Lots of stuff like "UNIMPLEMENTED syscall 252" and unable to find .a libraries. I did manage to run uname and ls out of my linux distro, for all the good that does me. :-)

I'm reconciled to the existence of idiots in the world, but I'm bitterly resentful of whoever it was who first thought to make computer technology available to them.
