Well, I did manage to compile chromium in 165 minutes, but I had to switch off jumbo-build to do it. I'd have thought that 32GB RAM and 38GB swap would be enough for anything reasonable, but perhaps chromium isn't reasonable. And today, of course, there's an upgrade. That's another reason I ditched it. Is there a way to force chromium to be not ~amd64 on a ~amd64 system? -- Regards, Peter.
