[Python-Dev] python2.3 on m68k-nommu uClinux, really slow
Wed, 29 Jan 2003 14:55:25 -0500
I'm sorry if this is OT. I have just managed to get Python 2.3a running on an 8meg
m68k-nommu 48MHZ (motorola uC5272 board).
It's a real dog, and I'm wondering two things:
1. anyone remember pystone values from old Sun 68K machines? I've seen a report
that a Psion 5 running 1.5.2 got 90 pystones (I get 72)
2. any ideas how I can speed this up?
OPT=-DNDEBUG -g -O0 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -m5307
Some snips from pyconfig.h:
I haven't enabled optimatization yet because I've had such a difficult time even getting
this far, I didn't want to run into compiler errors.
It seems so slow, that test/testall doesn't even produce any output. At least, not after 2
minutes.. Perhaps that's a buffering issue.
# ./python pystone.py
Pystone(1.1) time for 600 passes = 8.27
This machine benchmarks at 72.5514 pystones/second
