1 Watching top, i notice some gcc instances run under the portage user and
2 others under the distcc user - is that normal?
4 The gentoo distcc wiki page states "If compilations should also occur on
5 the local machine, put localhost in the hosts list. Conversely if the local
6 machine is not to be used to compile, omit it from the hosts list." and to
7 me that implies that all compilation is via distcc once its in FEATURES, so
8 i'm surprised to see jobs running as the portage user.
