Re: compile time on 2.6.8

I cut the compile time down to 19m20s.  Change line 14
in toplevel Makefile to
MAKEFLAGS += --no-print-directory -j 3

There has to be a space between the -j and 3 (or 4 or whatever you use).

I did have

MAKEFLAGS += --no-print-directory -j3
and it took 45m because there was no space.

Just as an aside, I ran another compile just a minute ago and all
I changed from the previous compile was I loaded VESA and VGA Graphics
and 8 and 16 bit fonts in Framebuffer so I would get the silly little
logo instaed of a black screen:

real 1m28.853s

into the kernel instead of as modules   So, if you don't change a lot
of stuff and a bunch of modules don't have to be compiled then it takes
a whole lot less time!!

  Fear of serious injury cannot alone justify suppression of free speech and
    assembly.  Men feared witches and burned women.  It is the function of
           speech to free men from  the bondage of irrational fears.
