Subject: [gentoo-user] emerging with distcc: What's taking so long?
Date: Mon, 04 Jan 2016 19:07:43
1 Hi,
3 what's taking so long when emerging packages despite distcc is used?
5 I have disallowed compiling on the local machine (which is the one
6 emerge is running on) through distcc settings because the local machine
7 is relatively slow. Yet I can see some gcc processes running on the
8 local machine, and emerging goes painfully slow. Using distcc doesn't
9 seem to make it any faster, though disabling local compiling seems to
10 help a bit.
12 Some compilations are being run on the remote machine, so distcc does
13 work. The log file on the remote machine shows compilation times of a
14 few milliseconds up to about 1.5 seconds at most. The distcc server
15 would be finished with the emerging within maybe 15 minutes, and the
16 client takes several hours already.
18 Is there something going wrong? Is there a way to speed things up as
19 much as I would expect from using distcc?
