Can Linux run OSR5 binaries?

ibcs2 has been deprecated in favor of the ABI kernel patches. See linux-abi.sourceforge.net and /Linux/linuxabi.html

Generally, yes. It requires the ibcs2 module. Aside from library problems, you are apt to find directory structure problems (usually easy enough to fix with symbolic links) and, if the application calls OS commands, you may need to make appropriate links for some of those, too.

See Linux ABI- Using other Unix binaries on Linux and http://groups.google.com/group/comp.unix.sco.misc/browse_thread/thread/7ed0f2b47f866b2b/dc8905f03ad0ca7f also.
