Did you do steps 2 and 4 from the /usr/ports/UPDATING entry?
AFFECTS: users of emulators/linux_base-f10 and emulators/linux_base-c6
AUTHOR: xmj at FreeBSD.org
The complete drop-in replacement linux-c6 port infrastructure is in
and will shortly replace the current linux-f10- ports as default.
To switch to the linux-c6 infrastructure you should:
0. Backup all your vital information!
1. Remove the current linux base port and all linux-f10- ports.
2. Add the following lines to /etc/make.conf:
3. Make sure no linux application is running.
4. Set appropriate sysctl (compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.18).
5. Install emulators/linux-c6.
That should be enough in most circumstances. If you experience
please be sure to expand step 1 to:
1a. Remove all ports which depend on linux base port.
1b. Remove linux base port.
1c. Clean /compat/linux/ directory.
Should you encounter any other difficulties not fixed by these
steps, please submit an issue report in Bugzilla and send an email to
emulation@ mailing list.date to linux_base-c6
