Linuxulator on Powerpc64

Project description

This project aims to implement the functionalities to run Linux binaries on FreeBSD on powerpc64 architecture. This has already been achieved for amd64, arm64, and i386, but not for powerpc64. Since Linux is a clone of Unix and FreeBSD is a Unix-like operating system, they have some similarities. However, differences do exist, and this project will implement a layer that specifically wraps the differences, especially in Application Binary Interface. In other words, the project aims to support binary compatibility with Linux.
