NAME

setarch - change reported architecture in new program environment and set personality flags

SYNOPSIS

setarch <arch> [options] [program [arguments]]

arch [options] [program [arguments]]

DESCRIPTION

setarch This utility currently only affects the output of uname -m. For example, on an AMD64 system, running ’setarch i386 program’ will cause ’program’ to see i686 (or other relevant arch) instead of x86_64 as machine type. It also allows to set various personality options.

OPTIONS

TagDescription
-v Be verbose.
-h, --help
  Display help (it is also displayed when setarch takes no arguments).
-3 Specifies that processes should use a maximum of 3GB of address space on systems where it is supported (ADDR_LIMIT_3GB).
-B Turns on ADDR_LIMIT_32BIT.
-F Userspace function pointers point to descriptors (turns on FDPIC_FUNCPTRS).
-I Turns on SHORT_INODE.
-L Changes the way virtual memory is allocated (turns on the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT).
-R Disables randomization of the virtual address space (turns on ADDR_NO_RANDOMIZE).
-S Turns on WHOLE_SECONDS.

-X Turns on READ_IMPLIES_EXEC.
-Z Turns on MMAP_PAGE_ZERO.
