RC5 Linux vs Windows
I have been cracking rc5 for about a week now. I am using the windows client and am getting around 1305 kkey/sec. I have a celeron 500 with 128 meg ram. Is this poor/average/good for my setup? and how much of a performance increase could I expect if I switched to a Linux client?
I am running a couple of oc P2s at 500. They run approximately 1.39 MK/s each. This is under Win 95, Dos and Win NT. This is using the .432 client which seems to be the fastest on my equipment. The Celrons I use seem to run at the same rate as the equivalent speed P2s. So, it looks like your output is a little slow for 500Mhz.

I have my celeron@550 64mb with just the window running while I'm at work at 1.49/sec. using the .436 client. It seems to me that there is not that much difference. probably wrong. Just started cracking myself. My old computer, AMD 350@400 could only get around 775/sec.

Thanks for the information. I guess I will stick with the Windows client for now as my computer is running in windows more often than in Linux. I am somewhat surprised that cracking rate it so close for the two os's. For seti, it took 18 to 20 hours per block in windows with blank screen, and Linux took 8 to 10 hours per block.
