Hello,2.8GB of anonymous memory
I'm not sure how to handle this,
while compiling firefox-3.6b1.source
I get this with the default compiling options,
as well as custom:
active_anon:2360492kB inactive_anon:590196kB active_file:84kB
[ 532.942508] Free swap = 0kB430MB of swap, all used up.
[ 532.942510] Total swap = 431632kB
That's a genuine OOM. Something (presumably cc1plus) has consumed
waaaay too much memory, quite possibly leaked it.
It would help if the oom-killer were to print some information about
the oom-killed process's memory footprint.
I would think that the quickest way to proceed would be to re-run the
failing compile command under gdb at the command-line and see what it's doing
when the oom killer signals it, wouldn't it? Or turn up the swap until it
doesn't get killed and see what info can be gleaned from the cc1(plus?)
