The verbose output from distcc prevents me from compiling mplayer
(bad gcc version check !!!)
It may incur some other compile problems based on "text output detection" that can be messed by distcc verbose mode.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.distcc-config --set-verbose 1
Mplayer claims a bad Gcc version : it didn't want 2.96 but mine was 3.3.4...
Just disable the verbose output of distcc...
This is an upstream issue with Distcc. If you like you can set distcc to use a log file (distcc-config --help for details) and that should help.
