Subject:   FreeBSD kernel init slower than linux
Message-ID:  <>

I know this is a awful subject, but I recently tried a Gentoo on my 
laptop and I was surprised to see Linux booting about 2-3 times faster 
than FreeBSD.

I don't talk about the init/rc script but only kernel initialisation. 
For linux kernel it's around 5-6 seconds vs 15-18 seconds for FreeBSD.

Why FreeBSD is so slower than Linux to boot the kernel?
