    Ok, I can't seem to find this anywhere. When I try to run Second Life on PC-BSD 9.0, I get the following errors:

    Code:
    Warning: Did not register secondlife:// handler with KDE: Directory /home/mooreted/.kde/share/services does not exist.
    bin/do-not-directly-run-imprudence-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file
     or directory
    

    Not sure if I should install glibc, dbus? It will probably gripe that my OS is 64bit and will want the 32bit libraries.
    Just thought I'd give it a shot if anyone can point me in the right direction.

    I looked into this recently, and as far as I know the port for FreeBSD is VERY old. I was reading the second life wiki re: FreeBSD support and it's basically, currently unsupported. You might have success running a linux distro in a VM or something, installing it that way.

    Ah, well, just thought I'd give it shot. I have a Windows partition for games, so no biggie.

    Thanks, and have a good day.

    Looks like you need dbus-glib, but don't take my word for it because I don't know anything about PC-BSD. The people at the PC-BSD forum (see link above) can probably help you further.

    Isn't PC-BSD just a pretty face for FreeBSD? I thought the code beneath was the same.

    I will cruise over there just for the heck of it, though.

    PC-BSD is based on FreeBSD, so a lot of the underlying code is indeed the same. And I didn't mean to say that PC-BSD questions are entirely unwelcome here. They are tolerated (to some extent), but you should keep in mind that most of us here are not PC-BSD specialists. Answers are likely to be based on FreeBSD and may or may not apply to PC-BSD.

    In this case, it looks like you're missing a library and that's about all I can say. The PC-BSD folks can probably tell you exactly which package you're missing.
