I meant "-mips3 -mgp64" (two options at once), not just -mips3. You need to check that you start getting "64/64" in --test output for DES. > I was not sure if this one was 64bit or not, Ive been trying to get more > info on the architecture. Sorry for any confusion there. MIPS III is 64-bit. http://www.linux-mips.org/wiki/Instruction_Set_Architecture#MIPS_III "MIPS III was introduced 1992 in the R4000. It adds 64-bit registers and integer instructions and a square root FP instruction." R4600 is a MIPS III CPU, and I found no mentions of it lacking any part of the MIPS III architecture. http://www.linux-mips.org/wiki/R4600 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R4600 Apparently, you're already running a 64-bit kernel (but a 32-bit userland?) Anyway, even with a 2x speed boost at DES from going 64-bit, you'll have poor performance overall, compared to modern machines. Your cluster will perform slower than a single core in a modern CPU does. But you're doing this just for fun, right? Alexander
