Hi,

I have got a laptop with i5 and 8GB ram. When I compile www-client/chromium, at the last stage, my system need apart of 8GB ram also about 2-3GB swap, and this makes my system extremely slowly and unusable till compilations end. Is this usual behavior or I need to do something with settings?

Its strange than simply emerge chromium is much more demanding for system than eg. edititng complicated project with full HD videos in kdenlives, which takes only 4-6GB ram.

This problem is only for chromuim, there is no such problem for eg. libre-office.

Strange... I've a 4GB notebook and don't use swap. Compiled chromium with no compilation problems.
You can try disable your swap before emerging chromium.

How many threads are you setting in MAKEOPTS? I expect that more simultaneous jobs would require more memory. I am using a computer with 1GB of R.A.M., so I will try to install Chromium tonight and tell you how it goes.

I emerged www-client/chromium (with MAKEOPTS="-j1"), and it seems to have used about 1GB of R.A.M. at the most. What USE flags are you using? What are you running while you emerge it? What are your MAKEOPTS? Something is probably really wrong if it uses more that a couple gigabytes of memory.

8gb will be fine... i chew on a little swap with 4gb on a quad core and 5 jobs at once.

You might need to remove -ggdb to compile chromium on anything that hasn't 32 gb of ram :twisted:

I will try remove -ggdb. I am wondering why there is no such problems with others applications, especially with libreoffice - much bigger than chromium.

Hey Xywa, I discovered that for some reason my chromium has all locales use flags on. You can try disable this locales too. (In firefox it's the opposite, there's no locale flag enabled).

My chromium build took up ~8h30min agains libreoffice ~8h against firefox ~3h30min
I didn't found this ggdb use flag... what are you talking about?

EDIT: found ggdb flag here http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/qa/backtraces.xml

You have -ggdb in your CFLAGS in your /etc/portage/make.cont (or /etc/make.conf if you haven't updated it)

-ggdb adds a lot more debugging info which means a lot more RAM and disk space, which also means compile times are higher. I would say unless you're doing intense debugging it should not be there, and if you do need it for a package you can always set that in /etc/portage/env and /etc/portage/package.env

Have you measured this? :wink: I haven't, but I wouldn't even attempt to guess. Also, there are many other factors, e.g. chromium links a lot into a single binary, which makes linker use a lot of memory. I don't know what libreoffice does.
