Subject: [gentoo-user] RAM checks for chromium

1 Two Intel systems with 4G RAM failed to build chromium, even after setting
2 MAKEOPTS="-j2". The ebuild is checking for a minimum of 3G RAM:
4 >>> Running pre-merge checks for www-client/chromium-70.0.3538.110
5 * Checking for at least 3 GiB RAM ... [ ok ]
6 * Checking for at least 5 GiB disk space at "/var/tmp/portage/www-client/
7 chromium-70.0.3538.110/temp" ... [ ok ]
9 Given I've spent more than two days compiling to get nowhere with this, I'm
10 thinking:
12 a) Chromium probably needs more than 3G now.
13 b) Either the ebuild, or portage, ought to check available RAM and dynamically
14 adjust the number of jobs accordingly - or have I watched too many AI movies?
