Default Upgrading CPU

Hi!

I have one Athlon XP 2500+ lying around

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K7/AMD...2500DKV4D.html

And currently i have Duron 1800 on my FreeBSD box.
http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K7/AMD...1800DLV1C.html

I have had cputype CPUTYPE?=athlon on my make.conf cause i've understood thats ok for Duron.

Anyway i was thinking to replace my duron with the AthlonXP and im asking now what should i do, recompile kernel atleast? Do i need to totally install FreeBSD from scratch or what? (running 7.1-release)

No problems: You can swap them over.

I doubt you'd get any performance improvments by changing make.conf to athlon-xp. I'd leave well enough alone.

only if your harddrive and all backup media explodes or something, should that ever be necessary

I was pretty much counting on that, just wanted to make sure :-)
