Don't worry about recompiling everything right away. Gnome takes a long time to compile! The cpu type does seem to help multimedia apps and WMs if they were designed to take advantage of the extra instructions.
I usually get a machine up and then change the cpu type after I have the basics worked out. Eventually after buildworlds and portupgrade I get everything built with the new settings. It works out fine. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
