Slammed on Slamd64

Posted 04-18-2009 at 05:12 PM by brianL

Got Slamd64 up and running. Same installation procedure as Slackware, except for all the package names of course. To compare it with 32 bit I'd have to reinstall Slackware 12.2, but like I said before I really don't want to duplicate what I've got on my laptop. I can't compare any laptop v desktop benchmarks because of processor and RAM differences.
LFS uses how long it takes to compile binutils as a unit of time. So I thought I might try that: get the source, and just run ./configure and make on both machines. It'll be interesting even if the results are not a valid comparison. And useful for when I'm ready to tackle LFS.
