10:21 PM - New linux base port

For current users (0.3), you can now use the linux_base-f8 port.  This uses fedora 8 libraries which run on the newer 2.6.16 kernel emulation.  However, you must make a few changes to your system to do so.  These are listed in the pkg-message file at the bottom for that port.

In short, you must set the linuxolator to use 2.6.16 os version via sysctl and set a flag in make.conf so that the ports system knows to use the fedora 8 libraries with other linux ports.

Further, if you update current you will not receive annoying errors (129 and 128) while running certain linux apps.  If your kernel is older than late today, it will do so.
