Well, it failed again - both machines (one Intel one AMD tower) - as
detailed previously. They were doing nothing else other than building
The machines are by no means gutsy, but still...4Gb RAM, 500Gb disk
space etc. Swap wasnt overly affected from what I could see, which
just leaves memory etc ...why would that cause it to conk I dunno.
If it is a resources issue for building, producing the error at the
same place each time, then it seems like its getting to the point of
needing a Cray computer to do this. Ridiculous. :-)
From reading other posts, I will have a go with the -j switch and see
what gives, but it seems remote. Not sure what else to do, or I can
do. The previous version builds fine, so I can use that and not
upgrade any more, until I understand what's going on (hmmm).
Thank you, good night (as it is for me) to all.
