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
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
