Hello,

I've gotten an old code of a friends up and running fine on my cygwin box at home. It also compiles and runs fine on my redhat 9.0 linuxbox. However, I recently got a new wolfpaw.net shell account and uploaded everything, made clean, and then remade after chmod'ing 700 startup.

When I go to compile I get this error:


make[1]: Entering directory '/home/mud/bop/src'
make[1]: warning: -jN forced in submake: disabling jobserver mode.
make[1]: 'bop' is up to date.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/mud/bop/src'


What exactly is this error and how do I fix it?
The code is a heavily modified UR-SWR code.

Post the contents of your entire Makefile so we can see what's going on.

its not a problem. if you find the make -j line in your remove the -j<number> itll stop doing that.

What its basically doing is forcing <x> files to compile at a time, instead of allowing the jobserver to do it.

Wolfpaw uses distcc, through the jobserver. your mud will compile on all servers at once very fast :P


this was another horrible explanation brought to you by kiasyn!

Ah, see, something only another Wolfpaw user would have known about. At least it's fixed though :)

to quoteth the man page:

-j jobs
Specifies the number of jobs (commands) to run simul-
taneously. If there is more than one -j option, the
last one is effective. If the -j option is given
without an argument, make will not limit the number
of jobs that can run simultaneously.


thats probably a better explanation :P
