| i see 2 linux clients.
| mt and non-mt
| what is the difference.
The acronym "mt" means "multithreaded".
There are two main improvements in the mt client vs. the non-mt client:
1) It can upload/download blocks while it's still cracking, thus making
it slightly faster at cracking.
2) If you have multiple CPUs, it can start a thread for each CPU
The "non-mt" client should only be used if you're having trouble
getting the "mt" client to work.
Is this information in a FAQ somewhere? I don't recall seeing it anywhere
other than in discussion here in this group.
