Hi there folks,
I hate to bother you guys with such a trivial matter but I have the
I have a large workstation i want to use as distcc server simply because
my laptop is bit small for compilations (being the powerhouse that it is
Here's the thing though, I've got the daemon running on my workstation
and I'm now ready to test the setup. Right, so here goes.....
$ distcc -o hello -c hello.c
Now, this works great! The file zooms to my workstation, distccd excepts
and compiles it nicely and sends it back to the laptop.
It then occurs to me, that cc is normally called slightly differently.
So i did.....
$distcc -o hello hello.c
Well now, this did not work so well. The file was not distributed and so
it was compiled locally.
This ofcourse means that when I try and compile anything, it's all
compiled locally only, because distcc is called as per the second
example, not the first!
If I reverse all this and compile on the server I have no problems,
apart from the laptop being WAY too slow. So, I'm thinking there must be
environment problem on my laptop that makes it different from my
workstation. But, as hard as I try, I can't figure it out!
Anyone have an idea?
Here are my systems......
AMD XP2000+ running Slackware 10.2, gcc 3.3.6, distcc 2.18.3
Pentium I Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT running DamnSmallLinux current,
gcc 3.3.4, distcc 2.18.3
Just give me a shout if there's any more info I can add.
In advance, many thanks!
