[altq 768] Re: help for a newbie...
I was able to copy the newly compiled bsd kernel to the root
Reboot and test with the cbq sample config files. All I need do now is set
it to start at time of boot (rc.local) and then go through the altqd.conf
file and try to figure out some of the options I will need.

It seems that your kernel doesn't have ALTQ built-in.
Did you use sys-altq/arch/i386/conf/ALTQ for your kernel config file?

The kernel module directory is only for FreeBSD.

For simple interface shaping, you can use tbrconfig(8).
Still, you need to have at least "options ALTQ" in your kernel config.

No. OpenBSD-2.8 + altq-3.0 works.

If you are going to use tbrconfig(8), you don't need to run altqd(8).
