After countless hours of portupgrade and make buildworld, my Thinkpad is now running FreeBSD 6.1. There were no major problems except:

  • Gaim doesn’t accept the gaim-latex anymore. I will have to get the CVS version and adjust it to my needs.
  • Opera complains about a missing motifwrapper.
  • syscons is somewhat buggy.

At least I have found a solution for the Opera problem. It’s right in pkg-message. For your convenience, I will post it here. Just add the following to /etc/libmap.conf:

# Opera - Motif
libXm.so.1              libXm.so.3
libXThrStub.so.6        libXtst.so.6
libXm.so.2              libXm.so.3
libXThrStub.so.6        libXtst.so.6
libXThrStub.so.6        libXtst.so.6

Maybe you are lucky and it works…
