elksemu(1)		    General Commands Manual		    elksemu(1)

NAME
       elksemu - Embedded Linux	Kernel Subset emulator

SYNOPSIS
       /lib/elksemu program [arguments]

DESCRIPTION
       Elksemu	is  a  program	that allows 8086 ELKS programs to be run under
       Linux-i386. These programs can be compiled using	the 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 executable directly.

OPTIONS
       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.

SECURITY
       The  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.

SEE ALSO
       bcc(1), as86(1),	ld86(1)

BUGS
       Elksemu is incomplete.

       The program may still have security bugs!
