icecc-create-env - Create a tar for icecream distributed compiler to
/usr/lib/icecc/icecc-create-env creates an archive file containing all
the files necessary to setup the compiler environment. The file will
have a random unique name like
"ddaea39ca1a7c88522b185eca04da2d8.tar.bz2" per default. Rename it to
something more expressive for your convenience, e.g.
Set ICECC_VERSION=<filename_of_archive_containing_your_environment> in
the shell environment where you start the compile jobs and the file
will be transfered to the daemons where your compile jobs run and
installed to a chroot environment for executing the compile jobs in the
environment fitting to the environment of the client. This requires
that the icecream daemon runs as root.
If you do not set ICECC_VERSION, the client will use a tar ball
provided by the daemon running on the same machine. So you can always
be sure you’re not tricked by incompatible gcc versions - and you can
share your computer with users of other distributions.
icecc-create-env takes no options.
