Ok, so obviously you aren't quite listening to what we are saying. First of all, 256mb is *not* plenty of swap with so little physical RAM...even to build uclibc. Typically, we've found that you can't even build glibc and/or gcc on gentoo/mips with 64mb of RAM, no matter how much swap you give the box. Also, wl500g does *not* have 32mb of RAM, but rather 16mb. I know, because I have one. Furthermore, isn't isn't necessarily the running of glibc, but more the building of glibc that is your issue. The only thing you'll be learning in this process is the fact that you wished you would have listened to us in the first place. -Steve -- gentoo-mips@g.o mailing list
