Hi, I compiled 2.1.89-4 with egcs -O9 -mpentiumpro, and it works
great. The memory management seems especially improved, but I seem to
notice an improvement (subjective?) in framerates or snappiness or
something in quake II also. Specifically, processes do not contiually
chomp the disk after they have once been swapped out. I don't know if
they are being swapped back IN, or what, but I no longer feel the urge
to reboot once pppd has beed swapped out :)


System: glibc 2.0.7-pre2, PPro 150, Debian 2.0 (beta)
egcs version 980122.
