One question, without any malicious intent, of course.
On i586, SSE2-optimised versions of performance-critical libraries have been dropped. This affects GMP and OpenSSL, which might result in lower VPN throughput with OpenVPN on affected systems. Support for this will be removed with the next release of glibc.
What is the best time to stop updating equipment with i586?.
Is the 154 core good choice?.
In some cases we cannot change architecture and we have to stick with what we have, but I don’t want to suffer from “programmed obsolescence”, hence the question.
I know that modifying the value of the “mine” file on “/opt/pakfire/db/core/” to 200, for example, no longer updates the core, only the addons.
