Solaris to Linux Migration

By Sivakumar_Jayaram ·
Can someone help me with what are the aspects and factors involved in migrating from Solaris to Linux. I am running C, C++, Fortran, Pascal on the Solaris Machine, will they be unaffected or do they have any patches to work along with Linux ?

Solaris to Linux Migration

by techrepublic In reply to Solaris to Linux Migratio ...

If you are going from Solaris/SPARC to Linux/Intel then you're going to need to recompile, due to being on a completely different architecture.

Depending on the code you have, this could be straightforward, or you could spend a while porting.

This begs the question... why?
