Can I just have clarified please re:

> chmod 0600 /temp-swap
> mkswap /temp-swap
> swapon /temp-swap

... that be done without messing up the swap already setup (in fstab)
i.e. it is a temporary allocation for the build process that can then
be deallocated etc  (hopefully you get what I mean) ?

The machine I'm using already has 8b swap (I believe) and 4Gb RAM.
I will track down the thread on LQ and try it out...but it is getting a
bit silly when a 4GB quad-core machine that is doing nothing else,
struggles or conks out due to resource issues etc :-)

Thank you again all for the input...maybe I am learning something too!
