Manual Reference Pages - ELKSEMU (1)
elksemu - Embedded Linux Kernel Subset emulator
Elksemu is a program that allows 8086
ELKS programs to be run under Linux-i386. These programs can be compiled using
bcc(1) C compiler.
Yom may use the
binfmt-misc module under Linux 2.1.43 or greater as described in the elksemu README
which will cause the kernel to run
elksemu with the correct arguments whenever the user tries to execute an ELKS
There are no flag options to elksemu, the first argument is the name of the
program to run the rest are arguments that are passed to the Elks program.
elksemu program may be installed suid-root and in this event it is able to
run execute only (chmod 111) elks executables and act correctly on the
suid permission bits on any executable.
This should be considered a security hazard so elksemu does
not have to be installed suid-root.
If you consider using this facility you should also be aware that it will
override the nosuid mount(8) option.
bcc(1), as86(1), ld86(1)
Elksemu is incomplete.
The program may still have security bugs!
