Thank you very kindly for this info tidbit. In my ignorance I had routinely built my kernels with only I686_CPU. Since the few boxen I have are all downlevel every niche I can squeak out some performance is sought after. Thanks indeed! -Mike _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
