    1 This is a SysVR4 emulator derived from work done as part of the NetBSD
    2 Project by Christos Zoulas.  It has been ported to FreeBSD by Mark Newton.
    3 
    4 To use it:
    5 
    6 1.  Choose one of:
    7       a.  Add "device streams" to your kernel config file and rebuild,
    8           reboot; or
    9       b.  Build and install the streams module in /sys/modules/streams
   10 
   11 2.  Build and install the svr4 module in /sys/modules/svr4
   12 
   13 3.  Type "kldload svr4" to start it up.
   14 
   15 4.  Grab compat_sol26.tar.gz or compat_svr4.tar.gz from
   16     http://www.freebsd.org/~newton/freebsd-svr4 and install them in
   17     /compat/svr4
   18 
   19 5.  Run "sh SVR4_MAKEDEV all" in /compat/svr4/dev
   20 
   21 6.  Mount a Solaris/x86 v2.6 or v7 CD-ROM on /cdrom (also works with 
   22     v2.4 and v2.5.1, but you need different symlinks in /compat/svr4)
   23 
   24 7.  Brand any executables you want to run, and/or set the
   25     kern.fallback_elf_brand sysctl to 'SVR4' to establish this as the
   26     default emulator for unbranded executables.
   27 
   28 8.  See if your SysVR4 programs work.
   29 
   30 It's early days yet, folks -- You'll probably have trouble getting 100%
   31 functionality out of most things (specifically, poll() on a socket doesn't
   32 look like it works at the moment, so Netscape doesn't work (among other
   33 things)).  Patches will be appreciated (use send-pr).
