Hello Andrea,

I did some performance comparison on my machine (Athlon 1200, 256MB DDR,
IDE hdd). Basically all I did was time the complete build prozess of a
kernel:

#!/bin/bash

REV=`uname -r`-`date +%s`
LF="/usr/src/logfile-$REV"
PAR=100

tar xvIf /home/public/Linux/kernel/v2.4/linux-2.4.12.tar.bz2 >>$LF 2>&1
cd linux
bzip2 -cd /home/public/Linux/kernel/v2.4/patch-2.4.13-pre5.bz2 | patch -p1
>>$LF 2>&1
bzip2 -cd /home/public/Linux/kernel/v2.4/2.4.13pre5aa1.bz2 | patch -p1 >>$LF
2>&1
patch -p0 < ../Makefile.patch >>$LF 2>&1
cp ../config-2.4.13-pre5aa1 .config
(make oldconfig dep clean && make -j$PAR bzImage modules && cat /proc/loadavg &&
cat /proc/meminfo) >
>$LF 2>&1
I ran the above script five times in a row after a fresh reboot into single
user mode so that no other processes could interfere. Here are the results:

* Kernel build did not complete because OOM killer was activated.

If further infos are interesting just send me an email.


Kind regards,

Jochen
