my sbu


Hi have run the time command and it gives me the folowing results......
real 3m 5.119s
user 2m 1.150s
sys 0m 22.730s
I am realy confused what these numbers mean....... This is the sbus for the first compilation of the binutils....... It was proposed by the manual, but i can't understand how much time the SBU takes

the time i used to judge was the real value which in your case is 3 minutes 5.119 seconds

hmmm...thx but i dont think that you are right... These numbers refer to the binutils in the chapter 6. In my pentium 233. It took over 20 min to finish...

about SBU's

Hi,

at least you have short SBU's compared to mine, that was approximately 7 minutes for the first binutils compile, that's what the SBU is for... if your binutils took 20 mins to finish with your 3.5 minutes then you surely had a 5.7 SBU time for compiling binutils in chapter 6, or similar...

For your relief, my binutils final compile took approximately 40 minutes to be able to finish

for one of my machines --a Pentum 166-- it took 56 minutes for chapter 5 binutils which is what the time command showed and matched up pretty close to my time estimate (which i admit wasn't the most precise aka jotting down the time off a digital clock)

yes that's about right but i was building it in my spare time for about 10 days... don't remember right off exactly since i discovered Automated Linux From Scratch to use my fast machine to build the system for my old slow one. though to get the most benefit i recommend building by hand the first time or two
