I tried to natively compile a GUI program in X/Qt. However, during the make process, it often popped up a window saying that memory of the workspace was too low (suggesting me to close X/Qt). Frequently X/Qt was automatically shut down due to insufficient memory. Although I did enable 256Mb swap space, it was hardly used by more than half as I monitored.

Anybody had experience with this. Is such a compiling prohibitive in nature due to Z's memory limitation?

Hi Shiroikuma,
How do you bind it in chroot? when I do "echo $TMPDIR" it comes back blank in Pocketworkstation. I can see the card though.


In qt I tried
"mount -o bind /mnt/card /hdd2/debroot/mnt/card"
and it still comes up blank in pocketworkstation.

Looks like the card is already mounted in debian. mount in qt gives:
/dev/mmcda1 on /usr/mnt.rom/card type vfat (rw,noatime)

So I tried export TMPDIR=/mnt/card/tmp in Pocketworkstation.
Now in chroot echo $TMPDIR, gives /mnt/card/tmp AND in qt I get the same, but I still get the Qt Memory status thing.
