Cool carefull confirm on using linux_base-fc8 Click to flag this post

Hi all
I just did a clean install of freebsd 7.2 final release (I not enable linux compatibility during install).
In first boot, I enabled linux compatibilitty with linux_base-fc8 as below:
====================================
Add linux_enable=”YES” to /etc/rc.conf.
Add compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16 to /etc/sysctl.conf.
Add OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT=f8 to /etc/make.conf.
Add this line to /etc/fstab:
linproc /usr/compat/linux/proc linprocfs rw 0 0
mkdir -p /usr/compat/linux/proc
mount /usr/compat/linux/proc
/etc/rc.d/abi start
/etc/rc.d/sysctl start
cd /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-f8 && make install clean
====================================

When 'make install clean' in port 'linux_base-f8', I saw that it retrieved files (rpm etc) from
fc8 directory on the net. However, when I install net/skype, I saw that it retrieved files (rpm etc)
from fc4 on the net (sorry for my bad English).
(I still not installed X yet so I cannot very fied my skype will run fine or not).
So my question is: is it normal or abnormal when 'make install ' retrieved files (rpm etc)
from fc4, not from fc8 althought I already enabled linux_base-f8?

If it is abnormal, how can I solve it?
Thanks and regards

Strange, Skype's download site is offering an fc5 RPM for Fedora Core 6 and Fedora 7. Which would explain why net/skype has a warning that the FC6 ABI is the minimal required; although the distfile says skype_static-2.0.0.72-oss.tar.bz2 rather then an rpm file.


I assume there is no explicit F8 RPM, unless it is straight from Fedora -- I would likewise assume the main issue is the Linux ABI, rather then which version of Fedora the RPM was made for; but I avoid the Red-headed Package Manager ;-)

It was installing other dependencies meant for fc4 because of the way the miscellaneous linux apps are setup. If you want the f8 ones to be used instead, add the following line to /etc/make.conf:
OVERRIDE_LINUX_NONBASE_PORTS=f8

You will have to deinstall the fc4 ports first and then reinstall skype and it should pull in the appropriate f8 dependencies.

It should work.

Yes it is normal. See /usr/ports/UPDATING entry 20090401 for more information.
