Comment Re:Dumped SuSE 9.1 Pro and back on Slack 9.1 (Score 1) 187

IIRC, the AMD K6 chip had certain specific optimizations that needed to be set to get the best performance. Can you check to see what flags your binaries were compiled with in either Slack or SuSE?

Unfortunately I already deleted the suse 9.1 partition, so I can't say anything about that for sure. Besides, I'm not quite sure exactly how to find out which flags they used when compiling the binaries.

If the problem is cause by unoptimized binaries, then that means suse may have changed the way they compile stuff since 8.2, because it worked just fine on the machine in question.

You are always doing something marginal when the boss drops by your desk.

Working...
