    SubjectRe: [Lse-tech] 7.52 second kernel compile
    > I think Im addicted. I need help!

    Well, you're not going to get much competition, so maybe help
    would be more in order ;-) ;-)

    Are you still doing something like this?
    # MAKE="make -j14" /usr/bin/time make -j14 bzImage

    I tried setting the MAKE variable as well as doing the -j,
    but it actually made kernel compile time slower - what difference
    does it make on your machine? Can somebody clarify what this
    actually does, as opposed to the -j on the command line?

    BTW - the other tip that was in the big book of whizzy kernel
    compiles was to set gcc to use -pipe ... you might want to try

    How much of that 7.52 seconds are you spending in the final
    single-threaded link & compress phase?
