Just FYI, I never got the 1.5 version to work and the last time I tried digiKam would not connect to my camera.

You do indeed need to be running the 64-bit PC-BSD to run a PBI marked 'x64'.
x64 is common notation for 64-bit, but maybe we need to look at the way we're
labelling things there.

The version of PC-BSD in the list of available PBIs is the *minimum* version
of PC-BSD you need to be running for the PBI to work. The 1.4.1 version will
work just fine on 1.5. :)
