That's bad. If you use native FreeBSD ktrace, then you should see only using native libc. And if native ktrace tries to use /compat... that's too bad. It shouldn't. For tracing linux libs one sjould use linux_kdump. But that's another story. > There is not such a file in any of those directories.

Yur should never use ldconfig until you *know* what you do. For linux libs only linux ldconfig is used and with chroot (-r /compat/linux). > the linux version of libc.so.6 -is- located in /usr/compat/linux/lib > where is does not appear to look. You shoudn't see it with native ktrace. Seems that you rewrote your linux(?) ldconfig database. It's not so hard to restore. Remove /compat/linux/etc/ld.so.cache and rebuild it by "sudo /compat/linux/sbin/ldconfig -r /compat/linux".
