Thanks for advice! I've tried that, but no luck - absolutely the same
result. The reason why I was asking about *support* for that processor
is, that there is no mention for X2 in
http://www.freebsd.org/platforms/amd64.html. Only Turion 64, and no
X2. And personally I think, that things breaks because of second core
of CPU :-\
