Why is tinycore slow?
« on: January 06, 2024, 10:15:37 AM »
Hi. I thought it was normal to compile Librewolf in 70 minutes, because I always compiled in TinyCore, until I compiled in PorteuX and everything was ready in just 11 minutes.

I don't see any apparent reason for this huge difference, which is why I'm curious. I assume it's something related to the Kernel or gcc compilation configuration?

Assuming the flags and compiler versions match, as well as storage media, I'd look at cpu schedulers etc next. Could also be you didn't give make a jobs amount, and they have adjusted defaults. Many possible things.

Look at top and /proc/cpuinfo when a compile is in progress, are you getting all cores used at the full speed.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
