Re: how to deal with "virtual memory exhausted: Cannot allocate memory"?

The qrc_resources.cxx file is automatically generated by qt, it basically encodes arbitrary files (such as icons) such that they can be used by the executable without loading them from the filesystem at runtime.  I don't know of a way to get QT to split it up.  There is a way to make an external resource file which might not run the resource files through the compiler, but that requires the executable to know where to find the resource file at runtime, which could get complicated when we build for non-debian systems.

The file qrc_resources.cxx is quite large (66M), is it possible to split it?

Hi MIPS gurus,

We have
Bug#837403: connectome-workbench: FTBFS with bindnow and PIE
due to inability to build that package on mips
or mipsel

both of which fail with

"virtual memory exhausted: Cannot allocate memory"

What would be your recommendation -- demand removing mips* from
supported architectures or there is a chance... ? ;)
