buildkernel. I never built a kernel. I'm probably going about it the hard way but in all of my experience with FreeBSD (which is limited) I have never built a kernel.
Reaction score: 3,645
I ran across this while looking for an answer to how long buildworld will take. I already made buildkernel from the 10.1-RELEASE sources using the stock (RPI-B) configuration, that took 5.5 hours. It might be slightly faster if I hadn'tHow long does a full
make buildworld buildkerneltake on that hardware? If it's something tolerable you could do a source based upgrade.
nice'd it, however, the Raspberry Pi was mostly idle so that shouldn't account for much.
arm_freq=900 arm_freq_min=700 core_freq=400 core_freq_min=250 sdram_freq=500 sdram_freq_min=400 avoid_pwm_pll=1 over_voltage=6 over_voltage_min=0
make buildworldis finally through, that took 52 hours. Accounting for the (very modest) system load, I guess under optimal conditions it takes something around 48 hours.

That's where I have them, too.Where do you put your clock settings above? I've modified my config.txt in the boot partition on the SD card
disable_commandline_tags=1 gpu_mem=32 device_tree=rpi.dtb device_tree_address=0x100 kernel=uboot.img hdmi_force_hotplug=1 hdmi_edid_file=1 disable_overscan=1 arm_freq=900 arm_freq_min=700 core_freq=400 core_freq_min=250 sdram_freq=500 sdram_freq_min=400 avoid_pwm_pll=1 over_voltage=6 over_voltage_min=0
Odd, I don't have any such Turbo line at all., however when I runit says "Turbo OFF"Code:
dmesg |grep -i "cpu"
How do you verify that? (I haven't verified that the clock is actually 900 MHz in my case, I just assumed it were.)and my frequency isn't changing.
I wouldn't have too high hopes where that's concerned - you might perhaps save an hour or so.Please help me over clock my pi running FreeBSD. My need to over clock is to hopefully speed up some compile times as you mention above.

Sorry about that. I was running 10 on one of my other pi's, however this new one I got is the b+ model so I thought i'd try 11. I couldn't find anything about over clocking pi's that are running FreeBSD other than here. Still confused about the Turbo thing, however it's no biggie. Appreciate the quick responses!Ah, 11-CURRENT. This thread was about 10.1-RELEASE, which is what I'm running on mine.
