Hello again all !

It's me again :roll:
Why is there such a difference in time between a 2.4.23 kernel compile verse 2.6.0 like 45 -60 min difference??? 2.6 being the faster one..

Second question compiler for 2.6 was upgraded to gcc3.2 right?
Fist thing that emerge did.
Can I still complie a 2.4.23 kernel with no problems :?

they are complete diffrend kernels!!
2.6.x is mostly faster when RUNING your system then 2.4.x. but no1 sayed, that COMPILING 2.6.x is faster then 2.4.x. ;)

2.6 compiles less junk, especially on sparc. You can thank wesolows for that.
