Me: oh awesome, wine 4.0 hit stable. Let's compile and see how fast we can break it!

*./configure && make*

Ok... Ok... It's been 40 minutes... Ok... Yep still going cool cool...

I think I need a new PC guys...

    That's why I usually build my kernels overnight ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Ever tried to compile OpenCV? You can go on vacation and it will still be compiling when you return

    @Snob I had to compile OpenCV once for a coworker. It literally took 2 days to compile completely ignoring the error messages I got in the compiling process which I had to fix.

    @Condor TF what kernel are you building? Did you enable literally every optional feature? -j9? My linux compile takes 30 minutes at most on a 15W laptop CPU.

    @tokumei old hardware 😶

    In case your old hardware has multiple cores/threads, it might be helpful to do "make -j$(nproc)" to have multi-threaded compilation

    @particleflux 4 core, no hyperthreading, but that would be useful to keep in the back of the mind, thanks!

    Small update: wine 4.0 wasn't worth the trouble
