I have a server currently running on a Pentium 4 box. Yesterday I bought an AMD 762 MPX chipset to go with two Athlon MP 2000+. The production server is running FreeBSD 5.2, a GENERIC with additional SCSI/RAID controllers trimmed off.
The kernel and all of the userland + ports were built with -march=p4 flags and I am wondering if there's any way I can just plug the disk into the Athlon box without rebuilding everything with the exception of the world+kernel. FYI, the kernel is SMP-aware.
How does the -march flag effect the userland programs? I am aware that only OpenSSL is capable of taking advantage of specific CPU instructions but other than that?
Thank you for your time, Ihsan _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
