Introduction to Distcc

Distcc is a program to distribute builds of C, C++, Objective C or Objective C++ code across several machines on a network. Distcc should always generate the same results as a local build, is simple to install and use, and is usually much faster than a local compile.

Configuration Information

Add one of the following to configure if you would like to build distccmon-gnome:

--with-gnome
--with-gtk

Not that --with-gnome takes precedence over --with-gtk.

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --with-docdir=/usr/share/doc/distcc-2.18.3 \
    --enable-rfc2553 &&
make

Install the package:

make install &&
if [ -x distccmon-gnome ]; then
  ln -sfv ../distcc/distccmon-gnome.desktop /usr/share/applications &&
  ln -sfv ../distcc/distccmon-gnome-icon.png /usr/share/pixmaps
fi

Multilib

This package does not install any libraries so only one installation is needed.

64Bit

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH64}" \
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --with-docdir=/usr/share/doc/distcc-2.18.3 \
    --enable-rfc2553 &&
make

Install the package:

make install &&
if [ -x distccmon-gnome ]; then
  ln -sfv ../distcc/distccmon-gnome.desktop /usr/share/applications &&
  ln -sfv ../distcc/distccmon-gnome-icon.png /usr/share/pixmaps
fi

Configuring

Running distccd from Xinetd

If you do not already have Xinetd installed this would be a good time todo so.

Create a rule for distcc:

cat > /etc/xinetd.d/distcc << "EOF"
# Begin /etc/xinetd.d/distcc

service distcc
{
   disable        = no
   socket_type    = stream
   wait           = no
   user           = root
   server         = /usr/bin/distccd
   server_args    = --inetd
}

# End /etc/xinetd.d/distcc
EOF

Running distccd from a BootScript

ToDo

Running distccd from inittab

Add this entry to your inittab for distccd to run on runlevels 3, 4, and 5:

dscc:345:respawn:/usr/bin/distccd --verbose --no-detach --daemon
