Comment (by hsw):

 I have Just managed to update to p6. Needed to force install of pkg,

 pkg remove -f py27-distribute-0.6.35
 pkg install -f pcbsd-utils-qt4

 After that the GUI package updater worked and it changed the Linux
 emulator from c6 to f10.
 (Hope that is correct)

 However the '''extattr_get_link''' update is still present.


 I have just done a fresh install on another machine (Compaq 6515b) and the
 above update
 is requesting to be installed again (third time).  I checked /var/db
 and can see there are already two installs.  Could it a bad entry in the
 freebsd update server
 or perhaps a bug in freebsd-update not recognising hard links that are
 already present?

 I installed the 6515b from PCBSD10-STABLE-p6-12-16-2013-x64-DVD-USB.iso
 using USB reader + 8GB microSD. card
