emerge glibc

Postby chinchey » Wed Feb 13, 2008 18:39

Hi-

So, I updated python and ran python-updater, which wants to emerge glibc-2.7-r1. My question is, how long might I expect this compile to take? I left it running for a good 5 hours and it still isn't finished. Stuff goes by too fast for me to see what's really going on, but does anyone know how long this should take? Or maybe a reference, like "longer than gtk+ but shorter than kdelibs" or something like that? I've got a reasonably fast processor doing this, so I'm surprised something is taking this long. Thanks

it's one of the longest compiles in SL right up there with gcc. (I have a turion x86-64 x2 with 1G RAM for comparison).

Takes ~1 hour for me with an Athlon dual core @2200 MHz

See, it's been running for hours on an Athlon 64 X2 6400, at 3.2GHz. I really think it should be done by now...

It's a long compile, but if you've got an Athlon 64 X2 6400, you're right. That sounds like it's taking too long to compile. Report back if you see something that made it take so long to compile.

Have you topped out on RAM?

Here's my /proc/meminfo while it's compiling (now at about 10 hours):

MemTotal: 2063888 kB
MemFree: 101792 kB
Buffers: 226044 kB
Cached: 1181556 kB
SwapCached: 0 kB
Active: 726244 kB

SwapFree: 2096472 kB
Dirty: 3152 kB

Mapped: 63956 kB

SReclaimable: 214804 kB
SUnreclaim: 30120 kB
PageTables: 5768 kB
NFS_Unstable: 0 kB

CommitLimit: 3128416 kB
Committed_AS: 409684 kB
VmallocTotal: 34359738367 kB
VmallocUsed: 43524 kB
VmallocChunk: 34359685115 kB

So, it looks like i've got available ram and no swap is being used at all. So I wouldn't think this is the issue. Anything else you might suggest I check?

Well, I left for about 5 hours and when I came back it was done... I don't know why it took so long still, though

See how many locales you are using in your system here: /etc/locale.gen The more you have, the longer it takes to compile.
Also post your CFLAGS (found in /etc/make.conf or typing emerge --info).
