distcc package installation
Should the Slackware package set these links up during the install?
From the distcc docs:
The links were already made by Debian, but I couldn't find them on the machine Slack was installed. No big deal; I made suitable links. Thought Pat or the powers-that-be might want to consider adding the link creation to the install script.
I checked where I have 13.37 installed and didn't see them either. I haven't seen what -current is up to. (I wanted to cover all my bases before I posted.)
When I used distcc a few days ago, I would precede the make command with PATH=/usr/lib/distcc/bin:$PATH
I don't want to "permanently" change the path when distcc is something I don't anticipate on using regularly.
The short answer is no. That is only one way to setup distcc (the phrase "For instance" is a dead give away). In fact, the preceding paragraph ends with the sentence, "Other options are discussed in the manual." For instance, in conjunction with ccache. How distcc is used should be up the user. My :twocents:
I'm satisfied with your two cents. Thanks!
