    Hello, I am trying to install linux-gtk... it is needed for firefox installation but I got the above error. What is the cause of this? I have installed firefox before without any problems.

    Thanks

    You haven't loaded the linux compat layer module... Try "kldload linux" or something limilar. Also, why do you want the linux-gtk, most GTK-apps should work natively on FreeBSD (assuming you use freebsd, should work on most, if not all, BSDs) if you install for example the /usr/ports/www/firefox port or something like that, it should automaticly get the freebss GTK-port. While were talking, installing is a lot easier from ports after installing the emerge-like "portinstall" from /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade or something like that.

    Isn't it better to install firefox from ports? I was able to install firefox actually... I did a mistake on rc.conf file... still new to BSD
    Now I am experiencing problem with plugings... on all browser. I went for installation of linuxpluginwrappr from port. Everything seems to be fine but plugins don't work, or at least shockwave. I need it to watch pages like 2advanced.
    Is there another port that I have to install?

    Thank You.

    I think you can install the linux version of flashplayer7 from ports as well... Shockwave never worked on linux neither AFAIK

    But with flashplayer installed is possible to watch pages that use shockwave, correct? I've achieved this with Kanotix and PCLOS.

    What is port to install flashplayer? I have nothing after "whereis"

    Thanks

    You can search for it like this:
    Code:
    cd /usr/ports
    make search name=flashplayer
    However, seems like you found it...

    Sorry, I haven't been able to see if it works or not because I was doing a buildworld-installworld cycle. Unfortunately something went wrong and now I am not able to login nor as user neither as root.
    I was trying to upgrade the system to current-release from PCBSD installation. This is what I did after make builworld/make buldkernel/make install kernel:
    Code:
    fsck -p
    mount -u /
    mount -a
    cd /usr/src
    mergemaster -p
    make installworld
    cp -Rp /etc /etc.old
    cd /usr/src
    mergemaster
    exit
    I don't quite understand the function of mergemaster and what should be done... let's say by default.

    Thanks

    If you can't login, try getting a FreeSBIE cd, umounting all drives, mounting them into a directory, chrooting, fixing from the inside...
