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
