Hi i have similar setup, old laptop that i want to run optimized.

I'm new on gentoo so i'm doing tests.

I setup a gentoo stage3 in virtualbox on a windows box and i installed distcc.

I did work distcc with the virtualboxbut I can't get work with the distcc monitor to see the status.

The two box are in the same LAN.

Currently i'm running deepin on the laptop.

gamamtz,

Welcome to Gentoo.

I've split your post to its own topic, so that your disccmon issue does not get drowned in what is at the moment, a differenet problem.

All of the distccmon programs are run on the client, not on the helper.
distcc saves its state in a subdirectory of the portage working directory.

At the end of the distcc install, it printed a message
Code:
        elog "To use the distccmon programs with Gentoo you should use this command:"
        elog "# DISTCC_DIR=\"${DISTCC_DIR:-${BUILD_PREFIX}/.distcc}\" distccmon-text 5"


Than means that you need to set DISTCC_DIR in your environmenl, to tell distccmon where to find its state.
Try
Code:
DISTCC_DIR="/var/tmp/portage/.distcc" distccmon-text 5
on the client.

/var/tmp/portage/ is the default portage build location and .distcc is the directory where the state is saved.

Blank lines in the output are normal, when there is nothing for distcc to do.
