The box has 64M of memory, swap space is ~200M.
how much swap is used during compiling ? Does adding more swap help ?

Ample swap left, I overestimated numbers in my previous mail.

The question is not if there is available swap space, it is if the build is thrashing swap.

Does your ip22 have more than a single CPU core? Mine doesn't. Try removing the '-j2' from the build in order to reduce memory pressure.

If I had only 64MB of RAM I wouldn't try to do too much at the same time.

If you want to, you may look at


to find the build log generated by
  2>&1 sudo ./debian/rules build | tee ../build.log
as well as a screen shot showing top moments before I interrupted
the build.

@Thomas: please drop me a note to the 2nd address in my .signature
         when done with above URL, I don't want to see traffic on that
