Trouble installing Gnome on Gentoo system crashes on evolution module

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble emerging Gnome on Gentoo system. It gets to the

module to load evolution- It gives two warning at the beginning:

1. you should update 'aclocal.m4' by running aclocal(I did, it still says it each time)


2. configure.in:63: warning: AC_ARG_PROGRAM invoked multiple times

repeats that 3 times...


then it begins the build and moves along until it screams: Out of memory!


and shuts down the process stating waiting for jobs to finish.


I only have 128M, is there a way to lighten the load for the build?

Did you post this question on the Gentoo forums? I am not using Gentoo, so will be of little help.


But, note that the real memory requiement is more than 128 mb of RAM fore a graphical interface. See this reference.


If this is a laptop system, then some of your RAM may be "borrowed" by the video card.


How much swap space is on this installation?
