I'm newbie in OpeBSD. I can't find options like CPUTYPE in
Have you tried the man page? mk.conf(5) and its references should help
to determine which knobs you can play with.
And when I'm compiled machine-dependent kernel [...]
Before you continue, you will want to read the FAQ on this, item #5.6
[ http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq5.html#Why ]
Then, if you're still convinced you need a custom kernel, remember
that fiddling with the kernel configuration is something you normally
do at your own risk.
That's putting it mildly.
And not to mention that, while rolling your own frankenkernel is bad
enough...rolling an entire frankensystem by messing with that sort of
stuff in mk.conf is...well...absolutely completely totally friggin'
Just what problem are you trying to solve? And what makes you think
that the people who use OpenBSD the most--that is, the developers--and
who know the most about OpenBSD--again, the developers--and who are
some of the best programmers out there--once more, the
developers--haven't already tuned the heck out of the system? Do you
*really* think that they don't know about architecture-specific
I mean, it's like getting a brand-new Lambourghini straight from the
factory...and then replacing half the stuff under the hood with
``performance mods'' from the backyard stash of the local teenaged
shade-tree mechanic. Sure, there might even be one or two such kids on
the planet who *might* be *almost* in the same league as the people who
engineered and built the car...but even if you happen to hit that lucky
one-in-a-billion, what makes you think that you're even a good enough
of a driver to notice the difference?
Do I hear a 12-cylinder engine roar ? ... yes, no doubt ... sounds like
a Lambourghini .. no wait, it's a BenGorini.
I like that car, it gives an honest response .. and fast.
