Hello everyone !
Last week a tried to compile the "gqview" image viewer program
on FreeBSD 2.2.7 and got the strange message from gcc
"Virtual memory exhausted"
This message did show up at the compile step for testimg.c
This is a small file in which an array of shorts is defined
and initialised with data.
The same happens with other files where a certain number of
initialised data is used to fill two-dimensional arrays.
What is the cause of this problem ?
Is the gcc which comes with standard 2.2.7-RELEASE version broken ?
I have 128 MB of RAM and 130 MB of swap space.
I did send E-Mail to the Maintainer of the Gnome and the gqview
ports to ask him this question, but the mail bounced.
That's why I now as the same question here.
Thanks in advance for your reply,
