Compatibility and available ports for SCO platforms

The SCO Unix is the most often used commercial Unix platform for Intel processors. Due of the long history of SCO, the different Unix platforms are not fully object-compatible to each other.

Consequently, to ensure the full system compatibility, there are five different FlagShip ports for SCO Unix systems (here listed from newest to oldest):

  • FlagShip for SCO UnixWare 7.x

    This version requires UnixWare 7.0 (or later) and the C compiler from the UnixWare UDK Development Kit (or alternatively gcc 2.7.x). The distribution includes both the static and dynamic libraries.

    You may download the free Test Drive via ftp now. For the alternative web download, use the corresponding link from Demos Web page.

  • FlagShip for SCO OpenServer 5 (OS-5)

    is ported on SCO 5.0.4 (OpenServer 5) with SDK Developer System vers. 5.1.0 (but tested also on OS 5.0.0 with SDK 5.0.0a). Do not use the UDK kit with this port. The distribution includes both the static and dynamic libraries.
    The statically linked applications may also run on other SCO Unix OpenServer releases (3.2.5), but not on rel. 3.2.4 and below. You may alternativelly use the GNU c (gcc 2.7.x) compiler, available on the FlagShip CD-ROM.

    You may download the free Test Drive via ftp now. For the alternative web download, use the corresponding link from Demos Web page.

  • FlagShip for SCO Unix 3.2.2 and 3.2.4

    is ported on SCO 3.2.2 with Devel. System 3.2.2a and is compatible to SCO releases 3.2.2 to 3.2.4. The dynamic library is not included in this distribution.
    The produced executables are widely cross-compatible to all SCO Unix releases including Open Server 5, but the special port for OS-5 is recommended when the wide compatibility is not required or the OS-5 system is used for the development.

    You may download the free Test Drive via ftp now. For the alternative web download, use the corresponding link from Demos Web page.

  • FlagShip for SCO (or Novell) UnixWare 2.x or 4.x

    is ported on UnixWare SVR4 rel 4.2.1 with the sdk C development kit ccs 2.0. It was also tested on SVR4.0.3. Although the produced executables are compatible to AT&T SVR4 x86, the installation and some system tools differ. Therefore, FlagShip 4.4 is available either for the generic AT&T/x86 or for UnixWare.

  • FlagShip for SCO Xenix 386

    is ported on Xenix rel 2.3.2 with the Develop.System rel 2.3.0a. The distribution includes the static, but not the dynamic library.

Please choose the FlagShip port carefully according to your used system. Using a FlagShip port incompatible to your SCO system may cause unpredictable behaviour.

Note: the C compiler is required only for the development, but not for the user of your application, which only needs the by FlagShip produced executable. See also section SYS.1.2 of the FlagShip manual for further details how to customize your application.

The required disk space on the /usr file system is approx. 15 to 25 MBytes for the FlagShip installation. Check the available space with "df  /usr" (and divide the displayed size in 512K blocks by 2 to get Mbytes).

Licenses:

There are free licenses for test/evaluation purposes, see the price list and license terms for additional details. When you already own FlagShip license and want to upgrade to another SCO system, contact your dealer or multisoft.
