Ill check - it was last year. I dont recall. But great tip for when I do re-test it.
Wow, didn't knew the K6-2s (do you have K6-2s, K6-2+s or even K6-III(+)s?) were/are that capable.
Code: Select all
cobaltDVB:/usr/src# dmesg |grep CPU
Notice: NX (Execute Disable) protection missing in CPU!
CPU 0 irqstacks, hard=df406000 soft=df408000
CPU: AMD-K6(tm)-III Processor stepping 04
They work fine! Not not intensive to anything but the network. And most Transport streams (even the entire mux) is less than 100Mbps.
Too bad that your Xeon machine is dead. But I assume each of your remaining machines is still faster in kernel compilation than your RaQs. I think you can also do the compilation in any Debian Wheezy for i386 installation (e.g in a virtual machine).
I like waiting the 1.5-2 hours to compile on the raq4 itself.
I've got kids. Gives me time to interact with them and get less grief from the wife about my projects.
