have you tried running any Linux binaries? Have you installed any of the
linux_base emulator ports?
Try downloading a linux binary or installing a linux based application from
ports.. if you do not get any elf binary errors then yo umost likely have
the linux compatibility enabled correctly. The only other thing to watch
for are any programs that might require linprocfs
Hope this helps..
