Hi guys,

I hit a spot of trouble this morning I edited my use flags in /etc/make.conf
to reflect the fact that tcltk is now separated in tcl and tk.
I then did an emerge -Dv --newuse world. One of the package where the
flags have changed is graphviz-2.6-r1.

I started emerging the various packages concerned and then suddenly
my computer became very slow. I found out that portage was configuring
graphviz and was stop checking for ruby. top revealed that the memory
usage of configure was going through the roof (88% and both ram and swap
were in short supply I have 512MB of both) and then it froze hard.
I tried to ssh from another computer but ssh never got to the password stage
in 10mn (strangely enough it didn't close the connection either so there may
have been some very slow communication).

After rebooting I tried a second time-same place the config script started to eat
memory but it didn't freeze. My konsole just diseapered, logged remotely and
killed the config script. Somehow kwin must have broken down in the process
as new windows didn't have decorations or borders, logging out an in again
took care of that.

I decided to leave it alone for now and poll the forum before filling a bug for this.
For info I am on a G4 iMac:
