Anybody know what the RC5-64 keyrate is for an AMD K6-2 400Mhz is?

 689 KKeys/sec (latest version of the client, idle system)
 677 KKeys/sec (older version of the client, idle system)
~550 KKeys/sec (either version, Netscape and xmms running)
 ~60 KKeys/sec (either version, xmame running)

Not bad, but not super-wonderful either.  Oh, divide keyrates by 1.4 if
you're running the Win9x client :-)

What blew me away was that a K6-2 400 did 18% better on CSC than a
Pentium II 400.

1. Segmentation error : AMD K6-II ( 400 MHz ), 64 MB SDRAM ( 100 MHz )

I just upgraded my LinuxBox, and since then, i'm occasionally getting
segmntation errors, especially while compiling the kernel sources.

My System is SUSE 6.2, MB Gigabyte GA-5AX, processor AMD K6 II
( 400 MHz ) and RAM 64 MB SDRAM ( 100 MHz ).

I followed the hint of SUSE about some existing error of AMD K6
which means the AMD K6 has an error which makes the system unstable
while using more memory than 32 MB.
They do not mention which type of K6 is involved.
I set the used memorysize to 32 MB ( lilo option : "linux mem=32M" )
and it did really help - linux is really stable since then.
Only problem i've got is : i didn't bought a quite expensive 64 MB SDRAM
to not to use it at all ;)

Has anybody made any experience with that bug...
Maybe it is only my memory which is buggy and not the processor ?

please give me some hints how could i find it out what is causing the
segmentation error : processor or memory ?

2. How to get rid of LILO

3. rc5-64/rc5-128 crypto lib/code for unix

4. lacking stropts.h

5. AMD K6-2/400

6. reverse proxy

7. Upgraded from Intel Pentium 200MMX to AMD K6-2 400 3dNOW (Problems)

8. NEC Versa 2400 kernel recompile

9. Celeron A366 vs. AMD K6-2 400

10. Linux on AMD K6-2/400?

11. k6-3 400 mhz + asus mb + 64 mb pc-100

12. Any advantages running AMD K6 vs. AMD K6-2 w/3DNow!

13. help crack rc5-64 in the name of linux!
