Re: memory usage compiling (was Re: Compiling Gnome ?)

Umm, I don't know why, but compiling from the console (at least for me)
NEVER takes up too much memory.  I compiled imlib, gnome-libs, mico,
gtk--, and my new 2.0.35 kernel SIMULTANEOUSLY two days ago on my box with
64 megs SDRAM, and I never had to crack into my swap memory at all.
