Trying ULE on 5.2-RELEASE :

(I have a dnetc running in the background)
portupgrade "feels" really slower (when updating the pkgdb mainly),
interactive programs like mozilla works damn good (playing with tabs is
now a real pleasure as a loading tab doesn't stuck so hard the others).

Did people try Con Kolivas's benchmark tool used to finetune interactive 
linux scheduler ? (Or is there any BSD equivalent ?)

Thanks a lot for your good work.
