Trying to use Distcc to spread a compile job. I have done everything the manual says to do includeing running the damon on the machine thats going to help and setting up the export with the correct information but distcc still doesent spread the job out it only compiles localy.

heres what i have done

Slackware machine

on the slackware machine i ran
distccd --daemon --allow

ok so on the lappy i do
export DISTCC_HOSTS=""

then i run make -j 6 CC=distcc

it starts to compile but there is no network acess and distccmon-text reads nothing distributed.

i get no errors or warnings or anything

anyone got any idea ?

I think i figured out my own problem.

I took a look at the make file for QT (thats what im building) and it looks like it used qmake from its own source directory not the system make so its overideing my CC option.

but thats as much as i can gather with my limited experiance.
