CrossOver Support

Will CrossOver work with my security patches? (grsec, libsafe, etc).


Sometimes. Many security patches disallow loading executables at certain locations in the memory map. Some Windows executables are stripped of their relocation records, thus must be loaded at a specific address in the memory map.

For this reason, you may experience trouble running certain programs in CrossOver with security patches enabled. If you are using grsec, please contact us as we may be able to help you. If you are using the "not executable stack patch" for Linux, you may disable it for CrossOver by running the following command: /usr/sbin/chstk -e ~/cxoffice/bin/wineloader
