Default prime95 linux


Wondering where the best complete documentation is for
linux version of prime95. I want to know everything there
is to know about configuration, optimization, etc...

I think this one is running a little slow for me (I have a P3
coppermine 650 that is doing about 1800 ms/iteration) and I
want to see if I can figure out what's up. Also it seems like
some of the features might be missing from this version
(like the torture test?) ... just want some doc on whether/how
this is implemented. (5 machines on primenet)
