Distributed builds

Do any of you use distributed builds in XCode? I have a new G5 with OS 10.4.1 and a G4 with OS 10.4.1, both with XCode 2.1.

The other computer shows up as "Incompatible OS" even though I am running the exact same OS on both. By other, I mean if I'm on the G5, the G4 shows "Incompatible OS" and if I'm on the G4, the G5 shows it.

Apple's docs don't say anything about them both having to be the same CPU, ie. both G5s or both G4s so I don't think that's the problem.

Any ideas?
According to an Apple engineer, distributed builds do not work across architectures (PPC, x86), but do within those (G4, G5).

Check that the software versions are indeed the same by hovering over the Status column in the list of computers.
