elksemu - Embedded Linux Kernel Subset emulator
is a program that allows 8086 ELKS
programs to be run
under Linux-i386. These programs can be compiled using the bcc(1)
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
with the correct arguments whenever the user tries to execute
an ELKS executable directly.
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.
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!
