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 126.96.36.199 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.
