New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

[Solved] CFLAGS="What the heck?"

Post#1 by 82issa » 14 Apr 2011, 20:59

We have the cflags listed for our 32bit processors in

http://porteus.org/component/content/ar ... ource.html

Code: Select all

[b]CFLAGS="-O3 -march=i486 -mtune=i686"[/b]
I haven't found anything that states some sort of standard for the x86_64 architecture. I know what I would like to put in there but if i want my executables to be the most portable across various x86_64 style cpu's. What options should we use.

great resource: I can draw up plenty of conclusions from here. But thought I might get some input from others.

Maybe:

Code: Select all

[b]CFLAGS="-O3 -march=k8 -mtune=generic"[/b]

i would follow Slackware standards which doesn't set '-march' and '-mtune' for 64bits at all, the only flags which you can find in official Slackbuilds are: -O2 -fPIC (i would also add -pipe)
Example:

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
