One short note: Compiling times

I forgot to mention two small but important things yesterday. Both of these were done with MAKEFLAGS="-j2" because otherwise I notice that the workload bounces between cores. ...

  • Time to compile a 2.6.30.7 kernel configured for a Pentium: 4 minutes, 17 seconds.
  • Time to compile gcc 4.4.3 with -march=pentium: 42 minutes, 8 seconds.

That's why I bought this machine. :twisted:
