8.02 Build Very Slow
« on: March 03, 2008, 10:57:38 pm »
I've installed CodeBlocks 8.02 on several machines without any issues.

On one particular laptop Pentium M - 2.13GHz 2GB RAM Windows XP SP2, the build of even the simple Hello program takes 1 minutes 20 seconds. The previous nightly built the hello.exe almost instantaneously.

I am baffled :)

Any ideas?

Thanks

Something like that once happened to me too (not 1minute but still a long time), the strange thing is that after the first compile, the compile time was back to normal. Is this happening to you, or you always get a slow compile?

The builds are consistently slow. Its as if the linker goes asleep. I checked CPU usage and it is quite low.

The linker is quite unpredictable in respect of the time it takes to run, I'm often baffled seeing it take 4-5 times longer than usual, and then running the same as before the next time again.
However, I have never seen anything close to one minute, not even when linking the Code::Blocks SDK.

I uninstalled and reinstalled and it still does the same thing. I am really puzzled :)

this could be a silly comment of mines but the computer you are using could be underclocked. You should check your bios configurations, especially if only is happening on one computer.

Did that. In addition during the build phase the CPU load is still quite low. And the last nightly build prior to 8.02 worked fine.
