Re: Re (2): Linux emulation with actual Linux installation?

=>The Linux system acts as an application invoked by NetBSD?

=>for documentation?

   Not if you mean the Linux kernel is running under NetBSD. NetBSD
detects Linux applications and emulates Linux system calls for them.
So you have Linux binaries and shared libraries invoking the NetBSD
kernel. You can read the compat_linux man page, or

for more information.
