Out of an old habit of abusing windows boxes with prime95 at work...
mprime -t -w/tmp/
I didn't use a gentoo-emerged copy when I tested my new desktop last
week... I just threw a copy from ftp://mersenne.org/gimps/ onto a usb
key and packed that and my gentoo amd64 livecd with me to put all the
parts together. That copy, at least, ran the torture test on both
cores by default. A little over 24hrs was enough to satisfy me... I
test systems that *have* to be dependable for a few days to a week.
