Linux I don't actually have a reason for trying to build a Linux kernel with the CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT patch set. There's no way I can even measure the impact of it. Still, I felt like having a "real-time" Linux box, and set out to make one. Little did I know how difficult it would be to even get started.

I too noticed the far too long amount of build time. You're probably right about the modules, and I guess Vbox does not help here. It took my little core2duo (throttled 1.2-1.6G) 20 minutes.

With a core i7 machine I would go LFS just to see if GCC test suite can run under 20 minutes.

I didn't know about `make all` being coupled to LILO, always good to know.
