I think your system misses some updated linux-\* ports: pkg_glob -R skype linux_dri-4.4.0 linux-fontconfig-2.2.3_4 linux-XFree86-libs-188.8.131.522_7 linux_base-8-8.0_14 linux-expat-1.95.7_1 skype-184.108.40.206 Do you have latest versions of the above installed? -- Adi Pircalabu (PGP Key ID 0x04329F5E) -- This message was scanned for spam and viruses by BitDefender.
