Question Duel boot Ubuntu and FC3?


How can I test the "speed" of my Linux system, 3D or otherwise?

Also, I installed Ibuntu and want to duel boot with FC3, do I not need to install grub with the FC3 install? I want to be sure I will be able to chose one or the other during boot.

Thanks in advance

You'll need to configure grub accordingly to boot both OSes. As far as testing the speed of your system, it depends on what parts you want to test.

Regarding benchmarking, superpi is a good cpu benchmark.

timedemos in games like doom3 and ut2004 are good graphics benchmarks.

You just need to have the proper stanzas in the grub configuration file: one for each distribution.

I doubt superpi is in the repositories.

Here's a link:

ftp://pi.super-computing.org/Linux/super_pi.tar.gz

It's useless unless you have something to compare it to. Here's a forum link with a bunch of tops times that you can compare to
