hello gentooers. I have installed gentoo on my openmoko gta02 with
good results, and i am using the native approach because the cross
compiling way seems too much complicated and much less fun.. Anyway
the 400 Mhz processor is really slow for compiling and i decided to
setup the distributed compilation with distcc, and it works well
ewithoutu much effort. The remaining problem is that each package
configure phase is very slow, i think because of the slow disk access
(it must read/write on the microsd card..).
so, is there any tested way to speed up everything? i used ext3 for
the partition filesystem, so i think that is slowing down everything..
i think that a ramdisk is very difficult to use because the device
have got really small ram (120 Mb!), so maybe a network filesystem
another option seems to be an autotools capability of using a
centralized cache file, and there was a portage feature "confcache",
but it seems to have been removed for incorrect behaviour.. anyone
know something about or has got good results with autotools caching?
thanks for any reply
