emerge firefox eventually (and suddenly, with no prior error) results in:

(Sorry for the poor formatting, I copied into vim and it turned out like this even with :set paste).

My make.conf:

Hint: the actual error would help.

To get it here, emerge wgetpaste then wgetpaste /var/tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-17.0.2/temp/build.log and post the url returned. Should also save you from battling vim's formatting.
First things first, but not necessarily in that order.

Apologies if I take a while to respond. I'm currently working on the dematerialization circuit for my blue box.

Thanks for the tip, I'll remember that next time.

Thankfully this error is probably something trivial though. I checked dmesg and it appears it simply ran out of memory (OOM killer killed it).

Teegrins, deltamalloc!

Very likely running out of room there (memory, usually... adding more of that, or swap, oft does the trick).

It is a rather common cause for this particular build.
See for example the topic Firefox 7.0.1-r1 fails to emerge [solved] for more tips; I hope they'll be of help!


Oops, you got to the answer before I got the post ready to go!


(And here I thought I checked the Topic review before posting.)
Kind regards,

You might remember me from Gentoo projects such as Forums, LXQt, Qt, and Wine.
