Since RELENG_7s GENERIC still comes with SCHED_4BSD I assume that you still have the old one. To be sure you can verify this by: % sysctl kern.sched.name In your case it should be: kern.sched.name: 4BSD To switch to the new you have to build a new kernel. Pretty good described here: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig.html Just be sure to replace options SCHED_4BSD # 4BSD scheduler With options SCHED_ULE # ULE scheduler In my case it resolved some mouse and audio problems under X.Org. Don't know if evolution is affected, too, but you can give it a chance anyway. -- Oliver PETER, eMail: [EMAIL PROTECTED], ICQ# 113969174 "Worker bees can leave. Even drones can fly away.
