Hi,

I've tried to run the client on my PS3 (Ubuntu Linux) but I keep getting 
following
error when running or benchmarking RC5-72. OGR-P2 works fine

dnetc v2.9014-501-CFL-07080708-*dev* for Linux (Linux 
2.6.20-15-powerpc64-smp).

> Dear friends,

> The PlayStation 3 is here. Perhaps you know somebody running
> Folding at Home on theirs? We couldn't sit idle. Our crack team of
> programmers has ported dnetc to the PlayStation 3 platform, complete
> with optimized RC5-72 assembly code for record-breaking speed.
>
> We really mean it: we have measured the PlayStation 3 processing
> RC5-72 work units at close to 170 Mkeys/sec, easily making this the
> fastest hardware platform our client has been ported to.  This is
> more than 22 times faster than a computer with a Pentium 4 processor
> running at the same clock speed as the PS3's Cell processor. Although
> OGR is enabled on this build, work on optimized OGR cores is in
> progress; expect a suboptimal rate of about 17 Mnodes/sec if you
> choose to run OGR.
>
> You are welcome to download this pre-release client from our web site
> at http://www.distributed.net/download/prerelease.php. Please note
> that this client expires in 2 weeks, when we plan to release a new
> version including optimized OGR cores.

> We thank you for your continuing support. Moo! ]:8)
