I tried and it died. perl5 would not compile on the MVII boxes.
Lmbench calls up perl5 for its output processing things. Possibly
it was due to lack of ram. I will try it on the MV3100/10 and
see if it has enough ram at 16mb.
IFF anyone has some binaries around for lmbench and that perl for 1.5,
I could use a tarball's worth. Lmbench ran up fine on my DEC 5000/200
crate, though. It has 120M ram.
How much swap really is required to run up gcc to compile perl on
the MVII? I have 32M swap. Should that be upped to 64M or so?
Are there any settings for gcc that will allow it to compile using
less ram? I normally turn off optimizers, and that seems to help,
but I was wondering if any other things might be done?
p.s. Something needs to be done about pkgsrc.tar.gz. It has been
unrolling for almost two hours on the MV3100/10, and still it
whirrs and whirrs.....
