This was not an upgrade but rather a fresh install. I included compat7x-amd64-7.2.702000.200906.1 in the install. I've found other packages that are giving the same error. Recompiling all of the ports is something I want to avoid. The install is done through an automated process that builds a FreeBSD 8 image using a custom script, combining our custom kernel with a bunch of binary packages we want to include in the image. The result is a tarball image, and that image can then be taken and installed directly onto our target systems via a USB boot stick.
We've used the same technique for 7.0 and it's worked fine. I was just thinking though: We do build our custom kernel, and the build is being done, for now, on our 7.0 build server. I got the binary ports from the net, and I assume at least some have been built on an 8.0 system. Can you combine binaries of ports that have been built on an 8.0 system with a custom kernel that was built on a 7.0 system? -----Original Message----- From: Norbert Papke [mailto:npa...@acm.org] Sent: Tuesday, November 17, 2009 10:47 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Cc: Peter Steele Subject: Re: ELF library not found error On November 17, 2009, Peter Steele wrote: > I've installed an 8.0 RC3 system and > included Python 2.5, 2.6, and 3.1.

If you upgraded from 7.x, you need to install the misc/compat7x port. Even better, rebuild all your ports. It will save you a lot of grief in the long run.
