I had the opposite problem: I could not build the world/kernel until I set CPUTYPE to "c3-2" (or "c3"). It was a brand new VIA EDEN-EX 1.5GHz with no other things installed but a copy of the 7.0-RELEASE-p1 source. (I did not have compile problems when I installed the 6.2 on a similar machine) I set CPUTYPE in /etc/make.conf. I think it is only used by the gcc compiler so it will probably only make a difference if you compile ports or from source. Compiling the kernel/world with CPUTYPE=c3-2 I think I see an improved boot time. I do not know of other gains as the server idles most of the time so I do not really care as long as it is stable. I never did try to time the kernel and world builds. :-) Torben Medmindre andet er angivet ovenfor: / Unless Otherwise Stated Above: IBM Danmark A/S Nymøllevej 91 2800 Kongens Lyngby, Danmark CVR nr.: 65305216 _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
