used to be 32, after reading tuning, I reduced it to 16. No, if not
mainly for compiling, I build world, kernel and ports on it. It's main
usage is a nat router for our dsl connexion, and a webserver with mysql
for a small web site ( 10 visit / day maximum ).

I just removed eisa, msdosfs and ipv6 but I need nfs. After recompile
and reboot, I gained a little bit and here is the ps -auxw
also, the 12th line of dmesg says :
ACPI disabled by blacklist. Contact your BIOS vendor.
but kldstat says acpi.ko is loaded. Is it safe to disable it ?
Thanks again for your time
