For Debian, on your local machine as well as the build nodes:
sudo apt-get install distcc distcc-pump
On the build nodes:
distccd --daemon --jobs <n procs> --allow <local machine ip>
Indicate to your local machine where to find the build nodes, IP addresses space separated with options comma separated.
If you are building C++ the
option is required:
export DISTCC_HOSTS='<node1 ip>,cpp,lzo <node2 ip>,cpp,lzo'
If you are using CMake for example, you will want to set both
respectively before configuring your build.
Now you are ready for a distributed build:
distcc-pump make -j<n procs across all nodes> OR pump make -j<n procs across all nodes>
It seems the package in the Debian repository is not properly configured, and one may encounter this error or similar:
__________Using distcc-pump from /usr/bin __________Using 1 distcc server in pump mode /usr/bin/distcc-pump: 1: /usr/bin/distcc-pump: /usr/bin/find_c_extension.sh: not found /usr/bin/python: can't open file '/usr/bin/include_server/include_server.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory __________Expected a socket at '/tmp/distcc-pump.dsNg8o/socket' __________Could not start distcc-pump include server
