After portupgrading linux_base-8 to the 02 revision, neither I or my linux
binaries can find the
file, or the /usr/compat/linux/usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 file. I know that
these files can be 6.0 and/or 6.2, but they should live in the above paths,
too, and they just aren't there.
After creating a package of the 01 version of the linux_base-8 port and
installing it, the above files are back in their place and
linux-mozilla-devel works once again. Those missing files also broke my
Linux OpenOffice 1.1 installation (and probably others, but I haven't
checked); the reinstall of the older package fixed OO, too.
Fortunately, I had a 4.9-STABLE machine that I had not yet updated to the
latest linux_base-8 02 version (still 01), and I created a package from that
machine and installed it on 2 other 4.9-STABLE machines. I also have 2
afflicted 5.2-BETA machines that i need to roll back to the linux_base-8 01
Reinstalling linux_base-8 02 did not restore the missing files, so I don't
think something else hosed my installation, but I could be wrong.
Will the linux_base-8-8.0_1.tgz package I created on the 4.9-STABLE machine
install (and work) on 5.2-BETA? I suppose I could try it and see if it
works, but I haven't had time to, yet.
