Slackware 9 & i686 optimization


Is Slackware 9 optimized for i686? If not, how can it be optimized for i686?

Thanks,
Hector

Nevermind! I found the answer right on Slackware's Home page:

"Slackware Linux can run on 386 systems all the way up to the latest x86 machines (but uses -mcpu=i686 optimization for best performance on i686-class machines like the P3, P4, and Duron/Athlon). "
