Hello list,

I'm following the instructions at 

I tried to kldload the module:

# kldload linux
kldload: can't load /boot/kernel/linux.ko: Exec format error

# kldstat
Id Refs Address            Size     Name
 1   22 0xffffffff80100000 846698   kernel
 2    1 0xffffffff80947000 74a8     geom_concat.ko

 11    1 0xffffffff80a5b000 1ce      accf_data.ko

If I try to install the linux port:

# cd /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-f10
# make
===>  linux_base-f10-10_2 linuxulator is not (kld)loaded.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-f10.

Finally, if I try to install compatibility in the kernel, I get the error 
unknown option "COMPAT_LINUX"
at the config phase.

Can anyone help me please?

# uname -p -r
8.0-RELEASE-p2 amd64 
The system was built today.
