Thanks, Thierry.

I probably have something wrong and there are many variables.  If I may ask,
which linux emulator and kernel are you using and are you using AMD or  
i386 distributions?  I'm assuming there could very well be differences  
with these.

I'm going to uninstall all the related ports and completely erase the  
leftover garbage and try again to see what happens.

Thanks again,
