Thumbs down An older benchmark utility?

Am running a P4 @ 2.66 with Hardy Heron 8.04.4 .
Have googled a decent amount of commands for terminal to find out that alone.
Saw posts from 2004&9 that said to use Mysql server or Postgresql server to get the benchmark packages to cook the box.
I am going to try and read everything through commands, then decide on new distro.
1st Mint looks easy enduser. Ubuntu is looking kinda' commercial.
Ubuntu still looks like the distro to follow.
If you want to tell me a package that the synaptic will load and let me use, I thank you. All the us.ubuntu.olderversions. server addresses are worthless.
THX again

These guys

make a Ubuntu and Debian downloadable .deb package.

Not sure if that is what you want or not.

This is what I run on this old Panasonic CF-48 that most folks would not bother with.
Just finished a dist-ugrade that I showed in another thread.

Might not be your cup of tea though.
Latest version is MX-14.4 with XFCE or AntiX 15 beta 1 testing which I also run on other gear.

Hardy Heron. Huh. Good luck with that. Happy Trailz, Rok
