I'll be installing Gentoo 2004.2 PPC on a dual G4 500 MHz within the next fortnight and I'm in doubt whether to start with stage 1 or with stage 2. It'll have to run a SMP-G4 kernel, but are any other low-level programs and libraries like glibc and gcc SMP aware if you compile them for such a target? In other words, how much of a performance gain can I get when I start at stage 1 compiling for a SMP-G4 rather then to start with stage 2 and go straight for a SMP-G4 kernel?

Thanks in advance,

hoytt
