different make.conf and long compile with genkernel

Postby bodycode » Fri May 04, 2012 2:26

Sabayon 8's Gr8, I'd be an indecent, ungreatful Bstrd if I complained. Which I'm not! I'm thankful. So thank you all you incredible FOSS developer humans :)

I was however wondering why the make.conf is so incredibly different than previous versions of Sabayon & other gentoo distros. It certainly changed a lot. But I don't want to use other distros, I'm sticking with Sabayon 8 anyway, however, I'd really like to optimize things.

On other gentoo distros I simply do a march=native and set the j flag to 7 for my I7 machine. I compile a kernel in 7 to 8 minutes flat on my high end machine.

ON Sabayon 8 however, it takes twice as long at over 14 minutes! Is that because the compiler is working 2X as hard to make a tighter binary or what? I'm really confused, any help would be appreciated.

check the kernel config file compared to your others, your others are probably leaner

I assume you are using portage all the time as changing the make.conf and using entropy is pointless.

I follow the guidelines for using both safely. I update one with the other, and, I follow the other recommendations. For instance, I've found that installing Sun JDK and Netbeans very difficult using Portage, so I use Entropy. So I do use both.

I don't think it's a question of leaner, it's a question of completely different, I think you know what I'm referring to.. If software in Sabayon is already compiled using the make.conf found, then would changing it to the "" settings break things when compiling stuff?

Thanks. I'd also like to know why Sabayon 8 uses the brand new make.conf
