What's it optimized for?
by Robocoastie on Mon 25th Oct 2004 00:43 UTC

Me: >>> why is the distro yet again i386 based?

>>Anon: Who says it is? Already SUSE 9.1 was i586 only with i686 optimized packages.

Well that's what I'm asking guess I phrased it wrong. On their FTP site the d/load for these live cd's is under the i386 directory. After reading more about 9.2 I discovered that unlike 9.1 there aren't seperate products for 64bit and 32 bit versions which further confused me as to just what Suse is optimized for.

So I'll turn it more into a question: Just what is 9.2 optimized for on the 32bit CPU side?

Thanks,

Rob
