New toy to build OpenOffice.org on
3 years ago, I have received new build machine for x86-64 (two
2GB). The old machine
still exists and still builds. So far, it produced many, many builds
for x86-64 platform. It's part of OOo history 8)
But its time is now over. I have got a new toy (thanks go to Dwayne
and his friends). Two quad-core Xeons 5310/1.6GHz, 4GB RAM. And it
Two Xeons inside make it a "breeze". So far, the best build time I
could get from it was 1550 seconds
(with hot ccache
But to properly measure the effects of various build options, I
extended my build script heavily. It now support measuring build time
of the complete build:
- compile ccache from source
- unpack OOo
- configure it - en-US only, mozilla from source, with binfilter,
create rpms only etc.
- cd instset_oo and build with build -Px -- -Py
The script takes x and y from the environment, so right now it is
building and producing the following output:

Building 11 modules in parallel, up to 3 processes in a module
And it produces interesting "wind" and noise 8).
I installed openSUSE 10.2 x86-64 there and will install 32bit chroot
on it and measure it as well.
I hope to get under 26 minutes with one language.
: with build -P8 -- -P2, the complete build process
(described above) took 1474 seconds (24:34)!
