Dear lobste.rs community,
I’ve spent a fair bit of effort on getting FreeBSD’s Linux base and non-base ports up to scratch. My repository defaults to CentOS 6.5 (which was released in December ‘13, as opposed to fedora10) and works well with Flash, Skype 4.2, Google Earth, emulated Thunderbird and SeaMonkey as well as a handful of games I’ve been able to test.
So if you’re using FreeBSD together with its Linux emulation capabilities (“linuxulator”), you might want to give my repo a try – I hope it “just works”, but if you find issues, feel free to report them on github.
Best regards Johannes Meixner
