For some reason, running bochs on linux on my desktop results in the simulation running absurdly slow. I mean, really absurdly. It takes several seconds for the "Booting from floppy" message to appear, and text is printed slow enough that there is a noticeable delay from one letter to the next.
On windows on the same machine, the same operation takes a fraction of a second.
I've never run into this problem on any machine I've had before.
Anyone else run into any problems like that?
That's very odd. Can you attach your bochsrc configuration? (Most likely bochsrc.txt on your Linux machine, bochsrc.bxrc on your Windows machine.) You might want to check the executed instructions per second as well as the clock sychronization method. BTW, what is the physical CPU? How fast is the core and how many cores do you have?
