    v12 v13  
    1818 * You may want to speed up your compilation through the usage of ''ccache'' and, therefore, reserve another ~8Gb (with few builds my cache is taking ~3Gb).
    1919 * You may want to combine WebKitGTK development with ''Epiphany'' development, the reference application using WebKitGTK and the official GNOME web browser. This will take another additional Gbs (approx. amount to be completed).
    20  * You may want to do your hacking in a chroot environment so it doesn't interfere with your production distribution. A basic Ubuntu Quantal Quetzal x64 in which to work takes to me ~4Gb.

     36== Choosing the working distribution ==
     37
     38Development branches of WebKitGTK require quite an up to date distribution. In the end, this is development so you may want to have your working tools as updated as possible.
     39
     40Well known working distributions are Debian Testing or SID, Ubuntu Raring Ringtail or Fedora Core 18.
     41
     42If you happen to have an older distribution as your daily production environment you may be interested on using a [wiki:WebKitGTK/StartHacking#Usingachrootasworkingenvironment chroot] environment in which to install one of these distributions.
