This appears to be a development snapshot of gcc 4.5 that is several months older than the 4.5.0 release. That's OK. > Here are the results on a 2.4 Ghz Core2: These mostly look good to me. Two problems are: the mysterious slowdown at "many salts" with the new key setup patch and the lack of a speedup with attempted parallelization of LM hashes (need more than two cores to see any speedup). None of this is a surprise to me - I saw similar results on other systems. Other than that, the new key setup works great, speeding up LM hashes a lot and allowing for parallelization for DES-based crypt(3) hashes in the single-salt case. It is helpful to know that this code builds and works on Mac OS X (I had only tested it on Linux), and that similar relative performance numbers are seen. Thank you! Alexander
