/proc in solaris does not equal /proc in linux. The proc files are mostly not the same names and if by accident something has the same variable name its semantics are going to be different. You will have to recode. Period.

What information does your code currently get? There is probably a different way to get it in linux. 'The Linux programming interaface' by M Kerrisk is you best bet. If you post back here asking 'How do I get so-and-so in Linux? ' you will get an answer.
