[opensuse-packaging] Call for testers: SSE/MMX/SSSE3 powered zlib
Hi:

Brave testers, will be cool if you can install an
experimental/development version of zlib, that uses SSE/MMX/SSSE3 to
improve the performance of the library from 2 to 6 times, depending what
features your CPU support. (determined at runtime)

If you want to contribute, add the following repository to zypper
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/elvigia:/zlib/openSUSE_11.4
and dup from it. (if 404, it hasnt published yet)

It works just fine in two x86_64 machines I have used, but Im interested
in getting feedback from 32 bit users,specially those running less than
current CPUs.

Finally please note that zlib is used by almost everything,either
directly or indirectly and if something goes wrong your system will
likely become unusable.

Im looking forward to your feedback.
