Did someone try it ?

Is Altivec support in the release ?

In reply to Comment 2 (PowerAmiga):
There is an Altivec RC5-72, although I'm not sure if it's finished, as no platforms currently use it and there is no support for it in the client sources yet. Besides, I'll need an AltiVec capable compiler before I can compile the Altivec core - i.e. GCC 3.

However, the MH 2-pipe core is much faster than the ANSI cores that the PowerPC clients for the other platforms are currently using (until they are rebuilt to support the PPC optimized core).

I shall be uploading new pre-releases by the end of the week, with G3/G4 cpu detection available, and a fix for a nasty bug in the PowerUp client due to some leftover debug in the version of libnixppc that I use for building the client (this bug is present in all previous versions that I've built too!).

Why?

OK, RC5-56 was designed to prove how weak 56-bit encryption is.

RC5-64 merely proved how STRONG 64-bit encryption is, as far as the lay person is concerend.

So what will RC5-72 achieve?

It certainly won't convince anybody that 72-bit keys are easy to crack (even though 72-bit encryption is not particularly strong), so what's the point again?

Other than wasting a significant amount of electricity worldwide?

Seriously. If someone can give me a good coherent argument as to why the RC5-72 "competition" will server any benefit (other than having a minute chance of winning a grand), I'd be delighted to know!

Exactly my opinion :)
What a waste of time and energy...

..true , true.


my DNet clients are set to OGR. thats unique and interesting.

however, the 'side effect' of having alternative platforms
is that i find distributed clients thin on the ground...where
i can, i run non mainstream stuff.... that said, my distributed
computing efforts include: SETI@Home, folding@Home, neo_client
(RSA-576, quite interesting), Mersenne-prime, IMP .... i try to
go for the non-commercial stuff

I'd like to see Amiga clients for SETI, IMP, folding@Home

I was wondering, Oliver, would have it been possible to compile one version fro Amithlon?
