These are likely Al questions
I can answer any of them also :) The reason it says that is because we
don't want people doing cross-builds out of frustration (at the speed)
or out of whatever missconceived notion otherwise well intended. Fedora
is native built and that's how this is going to be done. It's ok to use
distcc if setup but there have been some problems with the model network
so we are currently not using that (on my todo is to investigate the
network traffic and ponder hacks to fix the timestamp issues in lieu of
a fix to the model itself). "Foundation Model" and "Fast Models" (the
paid version) are interchangeable as far as these instructions are
concerned, but we don't want to use anything else at this time. There
will be real hardware in due course.
Also, distcc shouldn't be used for *official* Fedora RPMs, but
you're running stage2, you aren't building RPMs anyway, so it's fair
to use distcc. But you need to use the cross-compiler set up for
distcc in stage1, I don't know if that's feasible with the pre-built
image we have (stage1 builds distcc using your host OS, so a pre-built
one might not be compatible).
Generally, it's ok to do distcc at this stage because we're going to
rebuild again, but otherwise we do want to be as native as possible.
