Re: netwinder floating point

It is probably compiled with FastFPE because it is noticably faster (for instance with apt and dselect) and there were no known bugs anymore. Would you please consider reporting what kind of problem you have with sqrt and FastFPE? Without useful error reports, errors will just persist.

Hmm, bit offtopic here, but why would apt or dselect need floating point at all? Surely there are no tasks in either of those programs that would need anything but integer math? Speedup must be somewhere else...
