    As i've resumed the work on Slackware -current, i'm also rewriting parts of SOLEIL's build system in order to be more clean, versatile and also tuned on -current x86 32 and 64 bits.

    I'm impatient to add some of the untold killer features, but i have some more cleanups to do.

    The next good thing will be distcc 3.x, which makes the compilation cluster up to 10 X faster.

    For information, compiling a kernel directly on a 1GHz unit takes approx. 3 hours. With the old distcc, using 6 x86 cores, i went down to 36 mn. So next numbers should be even lower.

    Hey, great.

    Maybe you could add a working network manager after you added some killer features :) .

    I just discovered Soleil, it's awesome!

    It's impressive to have a PXE server running on the pandora.

    Moreover you give us a way to get faster at compiling pandora software \o/

    Too bad I don't have many computers to try it on…

    One PC is enough to bring a huge boost.
