7 Disabling parallel building

If parallel building is causing problems, you can always turn it off. There are three ways of turning it off:

  1. globally, by configuring gnustep-make with ./configure -disable-parallel-building. This sounds a bit extreme, but it's an option if you want everything to be always built serially.
  2. for a specific GNUmakefile, by adding
    to the GNUmakefile, just before including common.make. This is probably the most useful trick; if for any reason you find a GNUmakefile is not working with parallel building and you don't know how to fix it, you can disable parallel building in that GNUmakefile while still leaving it on for everything else.
  3. for a specific compilation run, by simply not using '-j' when invoking make. :-)
