5 And for anybody that thinks they have a bug in ccache triggered by some
6 package.
7 1. backup the contents of your ccache.
8 2. Clear the cache.
9 3. Build once to populate the cache.
10 4. Build again to build against the cache (once or twice, should have
11 identical results).
13 If step 4 passes, you know you had corruption in your cache.
14 If step 4 fails, then I'm interested in where it failed, esp. if you can
15 run the entire process again and repeat the problem on demand.
17 Note however, that while I have a high level of trust in ccache, I do
18 think there are more latent bugs in distcc.
