1 Hello!
3 I am trying to install gentoo on an old armada m700. The specs that I think is relevant for this problem is the clocking speed of the cpu and the ram. It got 223mhz of clocking speed and 116mb ram. I have added 512mb of swap since I knew the ram was going to be a problem.
5 The command I issue is: "emerge gentoo-sources" and the output of the command is this:
7 The only thing I can really read from the error message is that it runs out of ram. This surprises me because all it is really doing is moving the kernel sources into place? I asked around in #gentoo on and someone adviced me to turn of "MAKEOPTS="-j2" and "-pipe", but this doesn't fix it.
9 The possible work around I have thought of is just getting the vanilla kernel from, but the gentoo wiki advise against it, since gentoo-sources is a patched kernel.
11 This is my first post to a mailing list, so I hope it is not to bad! :D
13 With best regards,
