Hi there,

I do not have a Mac, but this could change in the near future. I'm interested in java programming with Eclipse and SWT. I noticed that it is significantly slower under Gentoo than on a Windows based machine.

My question: Is it even slower on a Mac running OS X?

If you change your kernel to 2.6.x and go NPTL you will find that eclipse
is more speedy, quite a lot actually.

Apps tend to always be speedier on Windows due to it giving a lot of priority to the active application.

I would like to know how fast it is under Mac OS X. Is it faster compared to Gentoo or slower? Or is there no difference?

It is slower under MacOS X. In fact, my G4 400 with Gentoo ran Eclipse about as fast as my PowerBook G4 1GHz does under MacOS X. But they're still heavily optimizing the MacOS X swt port and they have made considerate progress.

If it was not realy changed the last time,
Eclipse is no fun with OSX.
Its carbo(ar)nized. Its much faster with Gentoo Linux.

Thank you all. Do you know which milestone you used, Frank? I read about improvements for OS X in the latest versions.

Code:
# getconf GNU_LIBPTHREAD_VERSION


If this would reply with ntpl-X.XX then you have it. For more info see http://linuxdevices.com/articles/AT6753699732.html. I haven't enabled it yet myself but I am going to try soon.

Hi used a version released at october,
I can't say which version it was, because after seeing it, it decided to go on with netbeans on OSX, so leaving it on the disk would only consuming some senseless bytes, so I deleted it.
You're right, its definitly a long time ago, and I should give it another try on OSX.
On Linux I use Version: 2.1.0
Build id: 200303272130
which is, to be honest, also very old.
krgds,
Frank

You enable it with a USE flag, USE="nptl ... ... " in make.conf on gentoo.

Then you have to run the 2.6 kernel and recompile the latest glibc with the latest gcc.
