    You need to install a linux compat layer, and "kldload linux" or something like that.

    You find most things in the freebsd handbook:

    Did you reboot after enabling linux compat layer? If not, you would have to kldload the linux module from a terminal yourself... I think it was just a "kldload linux".

    Not Really necessary to reboot

    Well. I had same problem installing linux stuff on my freebsd machine. So, what you need

    1. do "kldload linux"(this will try to load linux kernel module to install linux binary support)
    2. if your program says "kernel too old" do "sysctl compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16"

    Ok, if nothing helps:
    1. Install ports. The best way to do that is to run sysinstall->custom->distributions->custom->src->set sys [X].
    2. No go back and hit commit, choose mirror, download from it(note:it can be CD/DVD)
    3. when done go to /usr/src/sys/modules/linux, do "make", "make install"
    4.now try kldload linux
    5.run your linux stuff(if not install linux compat as described)
