I'm running FreeBSD 7.0 on a server with an Intel Xeon Dual-Core 3060
Conroe (2.4GHz) CPU.
I'm wondering what I should set CPUTYPE to in my /etc/make.conf.
The file /usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf has this information:
# (Intel CPUs) core2 core nocona pentium4m pentium4 prescott
# pentium3m pentium3 pentium-m pentium2
# pentiumpro pentium-mmx pentium i486 i386
I guess those are the possibilities. Which one should I choose for my
Also, by accident, I had CPUTYPE=p4 in my make.conf when I compiled world,
kernel, and ports. "p4" is a flag from older FreeBSD distributions I
think. Will this ("this" meaning both that "p4" may be unrecognized and/or
it's not my processor type) cause any problems, or should I recompile
everything with the correct CPUTYPE flag? Installing world is a hassle
because it's not easy for me to do it from single user mode.
