Default Fedora


I have 2 Pentium 350 MHz Compaq machines. I had them both run under Windows 2000 and each factoring assignment took 6 minutes. I then switched one machine to Red Hat 8.0 and restarted factoring. Each assignment still takes 6 minutes.
I then installed Fedora Core 1 and restarted factoring. Here each assignment takes 18 minutes. (same range)
The screensaver was set to none, the system monitor says the process receives in the upper 90's % processor time, just like the other machine, I could not find any power saving for the pc. What else should I look into?

Try doing a benchmark and see if the timings are also much slower than on the benchmark page.

I'm running Fedora 1 as well, and my benchmarks seem okay. I've not actually used a stop watch to check though - always assumed that if the benchmark is good, then the timings should also be good.

Aargh, different factoring limits, the Fedora Core is functioning better than the old 8.0 code. Sorry for bothering you.
