This means, that the process with id 1460 has requested a system call
that is not implemented in FreeBSD's Linux emulation layer.

(In case you don't know: System calls are made by user programs that
want to request a service from the kernel, like reading from a file,
etc.. The Linux emulation layer maps Linux system calls into FreeBSD

To verify whether your installation was successful (which I assume),
just try to run a Linux program.
