This is what I just did:

1) /etc/init.d/distccd stop
2) Setup the PATH and DISTCCD_PATH (which I copied directly from the init
3) Started the daemon by hand: "/opt/distcc-2.7.1/bin/distccd --daemon --no-detach
--log-file=distccd-log.txt --user <my user name> --verbose"

I also did exactly the same on the other machine (laptop).

I then loaded up the gnome monitor and cleaned my project out. Then I
compiled the project with "make --keep-going --jobs=4" (from within
Anjuta). The compile started and distributed to the other machine and then
it just doesn't distribute after a while (like two or three files).

My machines log:

The PATH's are correct and the same on both machines.

So that's it really, and yes, the daemon's are both still running at this
