Thanks for the information. The rebuild of all sources should be the

Why a problem?
Edit /etc/make.conf (copy /etc/defaults/make.conf there if it doesn't
exist), use -O -march=i686 -pipe for CFLAGS (anything more is really
With your source tree in /usr/src (update by running cvsup on
/usr/share/examples/cvsup/DragonFly-preview-supfile, or preferably a
local copy with a mirror instead of the main server), do the following:
cd /usr/src
make buildworld kernel
cd /usr/src
make installworld
This is the super-safe upgrade method. It assumes something between the
kernel and userland may have changed (true for the next -preview),
otherwise just 'make world kernel' is fine.
In small upgrades (i.e. nothing big changed, and you haven't deleted
/usr/obj), 'make quickworld quickkernel' is a lot less work.
Set KERNCONF=(config file of kern in /usr/sys/<arch>/conf) after copying
and configuring GENERIC.
How much BSD experience do you have? If you have come from FreeBSD all
of this should be pretty familiar.

I have a lot experience with the BSDs. What I actually mean was, that I 
am missing pure cpu power and that I am haven't much
experience with pkgsrc. But I am currently reading most information I 
found via google regarding the pkgsrc.

At the end it's all a matter of time... ;)
