I marked the package by hand "build not on the octeons". This works,
but is of course clumpsy.
The situation on the buildds is as follows:
We have the octeons with 16 cores and the swarms with dual core. For
"normal" packages, building with up to 10 cores on the octeons works
What we really need would be a way to say to a package not only "you
can use up to 10 cores" (which we currently do), but also "you can use
up to n memory" (which would then limit parallelity for e.g.
aspectc++, but not for regular c packages). If you (or anyone else)
has good and working ideas for that, I'd be more than happy to
implement it on the buildd side.
