Please forgive if I seem a trifle dense, but how did you go about installing? If done using the ports system, as part of the process linux_compat and various linux-* ports should have installed as dependencies. Perhaps the install succeeded but left out linux_load="YES" from /boot/loader.conf? Possibly it may be one of the few things that need linprocfs_load="YES" too, but I doubt this because there would be a different error. I would expect it to be looking for the library referenced above somewhere below the /compat or /usr/compat (the first is a link) which is where the linuxolator resides. This library should be being provided by the linux- gtk2-2.6.10_1 port. Since the acroread8 is a linux blob it should be using the linuxolator to run. -Mike _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
