Subject: [gentoo-dev] [RFC] RESTRICT=parallel for builds that can't be executed in parallel
Date: Wed, 14 Apr 2010 02:12:04
1 Hi everyone,
3 Should we add a RESTRICT=parallel value for ebuilds that can't be
4 built at the same time as other ebuilds? Brian says we need it for
5 things like xorg-server which calls eselect opengl.
7 If we truly need this, is RESTRICT=parallel a good name? We could
8 make it a PROPERTIES value instead, but then we'd probably end up
9 with something like PROPERTIES=no-parallel, so maybe RESTRICT is better.
