Here's my machine specs: Ultra 2 Enterprise 2x300mHz CPU 1GiB Ram 2x18.1G SCSI drives (SUN18G's) Kernel 2.6.6 Now, this is while running firefox, bittorrent (73KiB / 76KiB), xfce, and about 9 xterm consoles. Gotta love bittorrent for transferring ISO images. fwee! Anywho: (freshly emerged version:) # time sloccount /usr/src/linux-2.4.28-sparc [...] real: 6m18.755s user: 3m28.700s sys: 1m40.590s What this translates into? Eh. I dunno. But my sparc is fast enough and stable enough for my at-work-workstation, and it's directly connected to the internet 24x7 without any firewalls. I can pretty much guarantee that while it may have had hacks thrown at it, it's not going to respond to any of the shell code that's out there. Oh, I guess I should state that sloccount isn't marked for ~sparc, but compiles and works perfectly. Dunno if somebody wants to tag it. :-) -- Leif Sawyer -- Pi@4398680 (907) 868-0116 || lsawyer@×××.com || leif@×××.net || internic: LS2540 Network & Security Engineer -- General Communication Inc.
