Yes, I did install Linux compatibility as part of the original
installation of FreeBSD, and I do have the proper entry in rc.conf.

One thing though, when I was trying to install OpenOffice, I received an
error message that something was incompatible with linux_base-7 (which
is listed as 'linux_base' in ports), and that I should uninstall it and
install linux_base-6 in its place.  Could that possibly be the source of
the problem I am having?
