Is that the user-specified I/O size or the system I/O size?

I don't have the ability to add more OSSs, unfortunately. The I/O is that we have objects in the 20G to 100G range and each process reads the object from beginning to end. I don't think that striping would help. We really just need to make it block.

comment Trouble compiling modern GCC with antique glibc
Thanks. I believe this will work. However, I found another solution, and that is to do the compiles on another system and distribute the binaries and shared libraries to this system. That's also ugly, but I think that it works too.

Because it's a shared resource among hundreds of users and I'm not the administrator.

Actually, I tried this and it didn't work. As soon as the shared libraries were installed in the directory, all existing binaries stopped working. Many of the tools require the new libraries to build.

comment Trouble compiling modern GCC with antique glibc
My code runs in 1/2 the time with the better compiler. The code is running on a supercomputer and takes 3-7 days to run. Without the better compiler, it takes 6-14 days to run.

So it sounds like the answer is "no, not if you are adding a footer or header, because today's mail clients aren't smart enough to validate just the inside of a S/MIME message." Perhaps I should simply have mailman strip the signature?
