hi all,

I've looked all over but have yet to find any sort of general guideline on how long it will take to emerge this or that package, given a certain configuration. I'm not looking for spot-on to the minute, more like "Emerging apache on a PIII with 128M RAM will take about 1/2 hour", that sort of thing.

Does such a set of info exist? If not, would this be useful to others besides myself? I'm sure collecting this sort of data would be a large undertaking, so I don't know if it'd be even feasible.

Sean

The tools to track this information are there. Yet no website or anything has a place where you can submit this info.. (idea anyone???).. I think it would be a great thing to happen though.

for example one of the scripts..

Code:

dylix@reaction:~/scripts> ./compileTime.py gaim
Scanning file /var/log/emerge.log for gaim

Date            HH:MM:SS        Package
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
15/07/03        00:04:07        net-im/gaim-0.63-r1
17/08/03        00:03:53        net-im/gaim-0.67
17/08/03        00:05:01        net-im/gaim-0.66-r3
19/08/03        00:04:36        net-im/gaim-0.67

ooh. i stand corrected, there is a script called "gest" that will display about how long it will take to emerge something, but only if you've previously emerged it.. another example :P

Code:
dylix@reaction:~/scripts> emerge xmms -p | ./gest

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies  ...done!
[ebuild  N   ] media-sound/xmms-1.2.7-r20   Estimate: 3m18s

Total estimated update time: 3 minutes and 18 seconds


and if you have not emerged the package.. nothing
Code:
dylix@reaction:~/scripts> emerge fluxbox -p | ./gest

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies  ...done!
[ebuild  N   ] x11-misc/commonbox-utils-0.4 
[ebuild  N   ] x11-themes/commonbox-styles-0.6 
[ebuild  N   ] x11-wm/fluxbox-0.1.14-r1

Very cool, thank you dylix! I'll have to check out the idea of gathering this info into a repository, as it would be very helpful for those such as myself who haven't got a 1Ghz+ machine and literally end up waiting all day for some emerges to finish.
