This document describes how to migrate your Linux system to compile and run programs in the ELF binary format. It falls into three conceptual parts: (1) What ELF is, and why you should upgrade, (2) How to upgrade to ELF-capability, and (3) what you can do then. After a fairly long fallow period in which I have been pretending to do academic work, it has recently been overhauled to give current information for Linux 2.0.

1. What is ELF? An introduction

2. Installation

3. Building programs

4. Patches and binaries

5. Further information

6. Miscellanities
