distccKNOPPIX is a directly bootable and self-configuring Linux system on a small (55MB) iso running a distccd daemon.
Its obvious target is for those who have other machines at their hands, and for some reason or an other can not get a distccd daemon running on it.
Attention Gentoo Users: The distccKNOPPIX (Debian) version of gcc is not patched with pie or protector support like the Gentoo version is. I'm working on fixing this, but you will probably have problems compiling glibc, grub and perhaps other programs until this issue is remedied.
All versions are identical except for the default gcc. All downloads have all 4 versions of gcc. You can also change the default gcc at the boot prompt by typing knoppix gcc-3.4 for example. Or you can change the gcc version at the command line with update-alternatives --config gcc. If you are unsure which version to download, try the gcc-3.3 one.
