If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

I have a 4-CPU Mac Pro, and I have in my environment: export MAKEFLAGS='-j 4' This GREATLY speeds up the build because make will perform 4 compiles in parallel.
Unfortunately, I get a number of error messages: make: *** No rule to make target `/Users/tjrob/geant4.9.1.p01.debug/tmp/Darwin-g++/G4globman/obj.last', needed by `/Users/tjrob/geant4.9.1.p01.debug/lib/Darwin-g++/libG4global.a'. Stop. make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs.... make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
Remarkably, the build continues and completes. This is surely an artifact of multiple make tasks attempting to build obj.last, one succeeds and the others get confused. But Configure ends up saying there were errors, so I have to examine the entire log.
Multiple-CPU systems are becoming the norm. Can the Geant4 makefiles be modified to work cleanly and efficiently for them?
