Prime95 uses x86 assembler code.

If your Unix box runs on a standard PC with an Intel Pentium (or AMD) chip inside, then you can probably use mprime (the Linux version of Prime95).

However, if your Unix box runs on various RISC chips (Alpha, HP-PA, Sun) then you probably want either Mlucas or Glucas. Send a private message to ewmayer for Mlucas or gbvalor for Glucas.

These are not as convenient to use as Prime95 and mprime though... they don't automatically interact with PrimeNet, so you have to get exponents and report results manually.
