3 Have your user do a binary search of the ccache dir to find which cache
4 file is causing the problem, by restoring from his backup then renaming
5 half the directories each time.
7 Then tie that to what the input file should have generated it.
9 Most of the problems I've seen have been due to a disk or OS error
10 causing the cache output file to be corrupt or empty, instead of the
11 expected object code.
13 ccache itself hasn't been the problem, but unreliable hardware has.
14 Provably by removing the corrupt cache files, then running with ccache a
15 few more times, and having everything work perfectly.
