Linux – Is it possible to run an x86 binary on an ARM processor

armcompilelinuxventrilox86

Is it possible to convert/recompile an already compiled x86 binary into an ARM binary?

I'm using a BeagleBoard with a command-line Ubuntu (Maverick) and want to run a Ventrilo server but the x86 executable they supply cannot be run on the hardware as far as I can tell (most likely due to differing architecture).

Unfortunately I don't have access to the source to allow me to recompile it natively.

If not, is there any other way I can get the binary to run (emulation for example)?

You may want to switch to an alternative software available natively on your architecture, murmur and mumble come to mind.
