FreeBSD 7.0 - kernel building very slow
 
Hello,
I've followed the instructions at FreeBSD Handbook. The process of make is very slow - taking for more than an hour. I do:
make buildkernell KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
Also if something interrupts the process (power off, reset...) the whole process begin from the very beginning.
I have Slackware 12 installed on the same PC and kernel compilation goes much faster there. Also if something interrupts the make process, when I do make for the second time it continues from the point where it was stopped.
Can you give me some insight about these issues?

you may use more CPUs/COREs of you have by:
Code:

# make -j4 buildkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
# make installkernel

FreeBSD and Linux kernel are two different things, so its no suprise that their build times differ.
