Distribute ProjectBuilder builds using 10.2
Authored by: tomsinclair on Aug 04, '03 11:28:41AM

Very cool! I wondered how XCode did the distributed compiles and it's good to see they're using an open-source tool.

I'd also like to hear about cross-platform distributed compiles with Project Builder, if anyone has tried it. We have several Linux boxes at work (including my desktop PC) and it would be neat if I could just pick up cycles that easily.

As a thought, Knoppix (http://www.knoppix.org), a Linux distro that runs off of a bootable CD has a version that is designed specifically for distributed compiling using distcc. So, in theory, you could burn a bunch of CDs with this, boot some PCs, fire up Project Builder and crank out the code with an ad hoc server farm.

Isn't open source grand?
