Navision on Linux MySql server

Navision server runs on Microsoft SQL server. But can it run on Linux MySql server? Can Navi run on Linux at all?
  • No is my first response. Not with MySQL.
    But I have heard that you by tweaking Linux with a special add-on (the enables to run another unix version - don't remember which), can run Navision 3.x.
    So maybe you can do it with Financials as well. Would be fun to hear if anyone did it.

  • I have read a very short notice in a news-forum regarding someone doing this.

    He used the intel binary compatibility specifikation which emulates sco-unix on Linux.

    And fortunately there exists an Sco version of the 3.5X server.

    I don't however think that the IBCS can emulate any of the unix-platforms which are able to interact with Financials. (Financials doesn't work with SCO).

    Also i think Navision performs best with Unix using raw-disc which is not native in Linux but will be in the future.
