I can't remember if I've asked this before, but here goes: It it possible/feasable to USB network all of my ARM devices, running a common OS (Ubuntu/Debian, likely) and have a mini-cluster going to speed up native builds? It would seem that with 2 Zaurii and an N810 (and hopefully a Pandora soon), I could get things built 2-3x faster, which would be nice.

I suspect something with distcc could be done, but my impression is that that ignores the "host" CPU (eg, if I started the build on the N810, only the two Zaurii would actually do work), making it less than optimal. Is that correct?

Anyway, thoughts, how-tos, etc.?

EDIT: It looks completely possible. I guess this thread will likely turn into a how-to once I get around to it.

EDIT 2: Changed the thread title, see the next post for the tutorial.
