convert from the ImageMagick package is awfully slow on my N2100, it takes about 5 minutes to convert a 8mpixel jpg from the cam to a 640x480. When i loo at top then i see that convert is taking 98% processor time. When i look at the top then i see that it uses only about 5% user time but 95% system time. Does this mean that some kernel function that convert uses is very slow on the arm version of debian?

sounds like floating point operations, which the oldabi port does
in kernel. armel port implements floats using softfloat which is
much faster.

Sorry for this newbie question, but how could i use / switch to the other port?
