Re: too long to build kernel

Yes! you are right.

I try to produce some statistical data with different kernels. The latest 2.4.32 takes
an average 6 minutes to build (~500 objects). But 2.6.0 takes more than
half an hour for (~3000objects and more). The latest one hour and more,
and again we are talking for thousands of object files. I was using a 2GHz Pentium
for the builds.

Thank for your replies.

Hmmm, sounds like your are mixing 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernels. Since the 2.6
branch, the generated output is much less verbose than it was with the
2.4 one.

My out-of-topic point: if you want to boost your kernel cooking and you
have a couple of boxes around, give a try at `distcc' ;)
