icecc-create-env - Create a tar for icecream distributed compiler to use




/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. "i386-3.3.1.tar.bz2".

Set ICECC_VERSION=<filename_of_archive_containing_your_environment> in the shell
environment where you start the compile jobs and the file will be transferred 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.
