This weekend they were having this big 25% computer sale at Media Markt, so I went there and decided to splurge on an ASUS X59SL-AP275C for my upcoming birthday.
Although it comes pre-installed with Windows Vista, the first thing I'm going to do is remove it and replace it with the latest version of my favorite operating system.
I'll go for the bleeding edge version FreeBSD 7.1-BETA and recompile the kernel with the new and vastly improved ULE scheduler.
$ cd /usr/src/sys/i386/conf $ cp GENERIC LAPTOP vi LAPTOP
There are two things to change in this file then we can move to compiling and installing the new and improved kernel.
ident LAPTOP options SCHED_ULE
That's all there is to it. I certainly hope that it works.
