Upgrade Processor [Solved]

Post by B3rtm3n » Fri Feb 08, 2013 23:22

I am using 64-bit version of Sabayon
I am replacing my dualcore with a quadcore.

Do I have to reinstall Sabayon? Or will it see my processor change just like my Bios?

I think I got the answer doing the updates today and while reading them I found the message:
  • You've enabled the cpudetection flag. This feature is
    * included mainly for people who want to use the same
    * binary on another system with a different CPU architecture.
    * MPlayer will already detect your CPU settings by default at
    * buildtime; this flag is used for runtime detection.
    * You won't need this turned on if you are only building
    * mplayer for this system. Also, if your compile fails, try
    * disabling this use flag.
    * For various format support you need to enable the support on your ffmpeg package:
    * media-video/libav or media-video/ffmpeg

Generally Awesome (tm)
