I have just done a clean install of current (amd64) and upgraded to
gcc 4.2 and installed xorg with /usr/local, /usr/src, /usr/obj on zfs.
No problems, except that one particular file would make my system swap
1.1 GB a couple of times before the file eventually compiled :-)

When I tried to generate a xorg.conf file my machine stopped and I had
to push the reset-button. I thought it was a mix of zfs and X so I
moved /usr/local from zfs to ufs and disabled zfs and rebooted but it
still stopped.

After I copied an old xorg.conf X would start fine. So it was probably
due to a bad probe. I'm compiling kdebase atm. and still no need to
adjust settings.


When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentlest gamester is the soonest winner.
