Nanonode too small for FreeBSD Buildworld?
I have a Nanonode with FreeBSD installed on it; it comes with 1GB RAM and 1 GB Swap.
Trying to make buildworld (in /usr/src) is aborting by kick me off of the ssh connection. I suspect the kernel is killing process to free up resources.
Is the Nanonode with 1GB too small to complete a FreeBSD Buildworld?
Personally I have yet to come across any *nix OS/distribution that, at the base level, won't run on a Nanode. The official FreeBSD site states the following minimum requirements:
A FreeBSD installation requires a minimum of 96 MB of RAM and 1.5 GB of free hard drive space.
That's likely for a very minimal installation, so YMMV.
If your SSH connection is dying while performing the
make buildworld I'd recommend using the out-of-band Lish console. This way you can finish the build as well as monitor for any errors that come through the console.
If all else fails, you can open a support ticket and we'll be happy to take a closer look with you.
Thank you for replay.
Using the following /etc/make.conf I was able to make buildworld (build time for about 4h 30min):
OPTIONS_UNSET=DOCS NLS X11 EXAMPLES CUPS GUI DEBUG
Lish console is a good option, i.e. it could be used to make buildworld in single user mode.
