Created: Mar 29, 2013    Updated: Mar 10, 2016
Resolved Date: Dec 3, 2013
Previous ID: LIN5-4045, LIN6-2821

Fix Version: 6.0
Severity: Severe
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 6
Component/s: Build & Config
Host OS: Linux Other
Architecture: All


/tc/platform/ERS_platform_20120604/platform/WindRiver5.0.1_Release/wrlinux-5/wrlinux/configure --enable-kernel=standard --enable-rootfs=glibc_std+debug --enable-board=intel-xeon-core --enable-bootimage=iso --enable-target-installer=yes --enable-parallel-pkgbuilds=8 --enable-jobs=8 

It takes 4 hours and occupy 40G disk for build while in WRL3.x it takes 10 minutes and occupy 2G disk for build.

I already ask customer to add --enable-rm-work, but their file system is NFS, and that option increased disk I/O operation, and increased build time. 

please refer to email thread attached for more detail.

and please help to provide ways to further decrease WR linux build time and size

Steps to Reproduce
