Re: netwinder floating point



Peter,

I get 2 different answers for sqrt(200).  with the fastfpe giving a different answer from lets say i386 while the 
nwfte give the exact answer that i386 does.


I am away from the system now, so I can't reboot it into 2.4.27, I will do it tomorrow and report back to the list

Jim
