Description Simon Matthews 2005-02-05 11:49:38 UTC
the configure process for alsa-driver-1.0.8_rc1 fails if distcc is specified in FEATURES

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install distcc set "distcc" as part 
2.set "distcc" in FEATURES (in /etc/make.conf)
3. Set CC="distcc" in /etc/make.conf
4. emerge alsa-driver

Actual Results:  
checking for GCC version... Kernel compiler: gcc 3.3.5 (Gentoo Linux 3.3.5-r1,
ssp-3.3.2-3, pie- Used compiler: distcc 2.16 i586-pc-linux-gnu
(protocols 1 and 2) (default port 3632)
Fatal error: Compiler type does not match
Decoded kernel compiler: type=gcc version=3.3.5
Decoded used compiler: type=cc version=2.16
Please, send ./configure output to <>

Log of alsa-driver attempted compile

I have a similar problem with compiling "alsa-driver". The error message looks
different from the original poster's, but it appears to be related to "distcc"
and parallel makes.

"emerge -v info" after failed emerge of alsa-driver
Comment 3 M. Edward Borasky 2005-02-05 20:15:04 UTC
I've got something that looks similar, though I got a different error message. I've attached the log and the "emerge info" printout. I'm definitely using "distcc". I'm re-running the emerge with "MAKEOPTS=-j1" to see if it works that way.
Comment 4 M. Edward Borasky 2005-02-05 20:41:48 UTC
Well ... doesn't work even with MAKEOPTS="-j1" and distcc turned off. After looking at the logs, it looks like an error in the source. So I'm going to open a new bug against alsa-driver-1.0.8_rc1. I'll flag this one as related.

Over and out

patch to current cvs to add RESTRICT=nodistcc support
Comment 6 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-02-08 04:42:09 UTC
some notes:
 - setting CC=distcc is wrong, dont do it
 - RESTRICT values arent supposed to be prefixed with 'no'
 - the error looks like maybe your distcc hosts have a mismatch in linux-headers ?
Comment 7 Simon Matthews 2005-02-08 09:26:33 UTC
Thanks for the comment regarding "CC=distcc" -- I'll take note of that.

Regarding different linux-headers: in fact, the other machine in my distcc pair was not powered up, so: there is no possibility of linux-headers issues, although I will also take note of this, since the other machine runs 2.6.x
Comment 8 Andreas Hofer 2005-02-11 14:34:47 UTC
I'm getting a similar error while trying an emerge --update. The output looks like this:

The /var/log/distccd of the distccd server yields:

distccd[25638] (dcc_execvp) ERROR: failed to exec i586-pc-linux-gnu-gcc: No such file or directory

This error seems to be related to the fact that my distcc client machine (old pentium notebook) has gcc linked (logically) to i586-pc-linux-gnu-gcc while the distccd server (Pentium4) has it linked to i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc.

Could you check your /var/log/distccd on the distccd server?
Comment 9 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-02-11 15:05:10 UTC
your bug is unrelated to this one, see Bug 29558
Comment 10 Jason Stubbs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-28 07:25:16 UTC
Putting a hold on feature requests for portage as they are drowning out the 
bugs. Most of these features should be available in the next major version of 
portage. But for the time being, they are just drowning out the major bugs and 
delaying the next version's progress. 
Any bugs that contain patches and any bugs for etc-update or dispatch-conf can 
be reopened. Sorry, I'm just not good enough with bugzilla. ;) 
Comment 11 Marius Mauch (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-11 14:34:55 UTC
Consider this closed as CANTFIX.
While distcc usage could be disabled this way it's hard to adjust MAKEOPTS accordingly (and -j10 or so on a uni-core box is a bit insane). Also distcc problems are generally parallel make problems so this would just hide the problem, not solve it.
