After another, um, heated discussion, on -current@, I finally decided to use the other half of my harddrive here at work and install DFly. I did the route of installing FBSD 4.10 and then a source upgrade and it worked wonderfully. So far, all I can say is "WOW." :) I have been running -CURRENT on this machine for about a year, and have been somewhat disappointed in the stability and performance. Not that I expected it to work as well as -STABLE does at home, mind you, but it was not as good as I was hoping. There has been a noticeable improvement, but it is still rather underperforming. Now that I have DFly running here (just the last couple of days) I have seen a tremendous improvement in performance. On -CURRENT, even doing one

	You should be able to get around the cups-base problem because
	we allow the system name to be overriden because most of the
	scripts query using 'uname' and not 'sysctl', so something like
	this should get you through (on csh):

	# setenv uname_S DragonFlyBSD
	(or FreeBSD, whatever floats the boat)

That should do the trick boss! :-p

	Thanks for the excellent comments you provided on DragonFly.
	As a member of the DragonFly project, I highly appreciate it on
	behalf of everyone.
