Hello, My current attempt to reduce the memory consumption is in the git on salsa: https://salsa.debian.org/debian/ns3/ In addition to the two flags that Aurelien advised, I removed the -g flags to kill the debug symbols. But that's still not sufficient (tested on the porterbox). I'd like to add that ns3 has two stupid RC bugs related to python2 that are fixed with this upload. I have tested all the ideas that I had, and I'm really hopping that you'll find a solution to help me. Thanks in advance, Mt On Sat, Jan 25, 2020 at 10:53:37AM +0100, Aurelien Jarno wrote: > Hi MIPS porters, > > Martin Quinson has issues to get ns3 built on mipsel (see below).

Now you have a forest of subtly incompatible solutions.
