Distribution Failure Causes

Ok, so I've been wondering what could be causing these issues here's a weird thing: When trying to send the file over the network it doesn't seem to getting distributed right now (Using cl settings). I don't know why this is but with gcc it seems to get distrubted fine. I'll document more as I find out how and why this is happening

how to make several processes work together and how to reserve the debug information?

first, thanks a lot for the authors working with the distcc vc support;

I have two questions about distcc with vc support, thanks a lot!

1, how to make several threads working together?

I have already use the distcc with MSVC on the windows with the support of CygWin; but now, I only can make the whole project with single thread, when I assign the -jN opition to gnu make, a error occurs: sth about vc60.idb file can't be accessed, maybe the cl.exe will used this file when compile a c file, when several threads works concurrently they want to open the file, but the file can't be opened by more than one users for writing purpose.

I use vc60, and export the projects mkfiles, and modified the nmake makefile to gnu's make file. and want to use the -jN opition , but failed.

2, how to dealwith the pdb file? Can the distcc maintain the debug informations when distributing the compile task?

When I get a exe file generated by the distcc tools, can I use the vc IDE to debug the exe? just like debug the exe which generated on the localhost?

Did someone has some method to resolve this problem? thanks!
