That means it will work on any Linux distribution that is recent.  ELF is
the type of executable encoding used, and ELF has been around for a
while.  RedHat 5.0 was ELF based, if I remember right, and that is pretty
old.  So any version of SUSE that is not 5 years old will work fine.  The
2.0 part is for the Linux kernel, and again SUSE will for certain have at
*least* that new a kernel.

In short, you will be fine.  WRI has done it the right way, as
Mathematica is pretty nuetral about the distro.

I am running it on Debian unstable, zero problems.
