That's not true. I just ran `make buildworld buildkernel` on my firewall. Here are ccache stats when the operation finished: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [/root]# ccache -s cache directory /srv/.ccache cache hit 12056 cache miss 38 called for link 461 multiple source files 1 not a C/C++ file 1228 unsupported compiler option 7 files in cache 117366 cache size 679.6 Mbytes max cache size 2.0 Gbytes Ccache is used through the entire build process and there is no hackery involved. Just follow the directions for changing the compiler to /usr/local/libexec/ccache/world-cc. On this Celeron D 1.8 GHz machine rebuilding world and kernel takes 45 minutes and 40 seconds. I don't recall exactly what it was without ccache, but I think it was around 3 hours. Just make sure that you set the CCACHE_HASH_COMPILER variable, otherwise it will assume that the compiler is different just because its modification time has changed. - Max _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
