Hi everyone,

I searching to find information about my CPU type.

With the following command:
# dmesg | grep -i cpu
i have this: CPU: Mobile AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 2800+ (1600.06-Mhz 
686-class CPU)
but with a
# uname -m
i have i386.

I must configure my CPUTYPE?= in /etc/make.conf.
I'ts i686 (686-class) or i386 ?

Can you give me information please ?

Thank you.
