Setting Up Icecream

This page mainly serves as a simple copy and page crafted for using Icecream during Akademy08.

Important note: To save the network resources for people using wireless resources it is not allowed to use distcc or the Icecream cluster over wireless devices.


All details on Icecream are on the SuSE project page:



  • Room 116 : (net icecc_a116)
  • Room 213 (Lab 2) : (net icecc_a213)
  • Room 203 (huge core 2 duo farm) (net icecc_a203)



sudo apt-get install icecc icecc-monitor


  • enable Unsupported Updates (hardy-backports) with software-properties-kde
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install icecc icecc-monitor


emerge icecream

Configuration file is in /etc/conf.d/ instead of /etc/icecc. icemon is not included in the main portage tree. Get ebuild here.


yast -i icecream icecream-monitor

Using Icecream


  • Open /etc/icecc/icecc.conf
  • save and restart icecc: "/etc/init.d/icecc restart".


  • Set ICECREAM_NETNAME and ICECREAM_SCHEDULER_HOST in /etc/conf.d/icecream
  • type "/etc/init.d/icecream start" to start the daemon.

General use

To use icecream with normal GNU Make, all that you have to do is just override the path to gcc/g++.

export PATH=[your-path-to-icecc]/bin:$PATH

When using GNU make, give -j option to build parallel.

make -j# (# is number of jobs)
