Testers: CentOS 6.5 Emulation and New AppCafe
For those of you on Edge and who wish to test the new Linux emulation and the new Appcafe, Kris has posted the instructions:
CentOS 6.5 emulation has been made the default for the EDGE packages going out this weekend. This replaces the legacy f10 package set. I’ve tested / confirmed that Flash works properly, haven’t tried net-im/skype4 yet, but a package is available for those who want to try.
I’ve seen a few issues doing the update here with PKG. It seems often the conflict detection won’t remove f10 on its own, so I’ve had to do this:
# pkg update -f
# pkg delete linux_base-f10\*
# pkg install nvidia-driver (Skip this if you don’t use nvidia drivers)
# pkg install pcbsd-base
# pkg upgrade
# pc-extractoverlay ports
After reboot, you need to recreate the flash plugin:
% flashpluginctl off && flashpluginctl on
Let us know any issues you see with the newer linux emulation layer.
Also, if you run into problems launching / navigating the newer AppCafe, please open bug reports asap. We are working to stabilize that as quickly as possible. Bug reports should be created at bugs.pcbsd.org.
