I have noticed in recent kernels that there is an option to compile using -Os as well however I have not used that yet simply because I try to play it safe, especially with my kernels. I would be interested in hearing feedback as to which "safe" optimizations can be used when building a kernel.

</blockquote><div><br>I share your concern here as well. One app in particular that comes to mind is lyx which in the past has not gotten along well with heavy optimization, at least for me. Granted this was nearly two years ago when I, like many newcomers to Gentoo, got a bit ridiculous with the CFLAGS. Duncan's post was very educational and has made me reconsider trying additional optimizations again. I am definitely interested in hearing recommendations for proceeding even though like Mark I recently completed a rebuild of my system recently. I am looking forward to the continuation of this thread.
