Thanks for the suggestion. Actually, I already use only one jail, but I not=
ice anyway
that I have some parallel builds (one per cpu core I guess; I have two cpu
cores and receive messages from a "red builder" and from a "green builder")=
.
I think that to have only one build at the time I should follow Shane Amble=
r's
instructions, however at the moment I do not feel the need for this: the on=
ly
long compilation time port with which I deal in poudriere is llvm (while I =
need
qt5-webengine and openoffice for regular use) and I have my little trick fo=
r that.
