Thanks @keesj for your information. Let’s see:
-You need at least 8Gig of memory to compile webkit
I physically do have 8GB of mem. I have devoted up to 4GB to /tmp (
fstab: tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nosuid 0 0), but have additional 8.5GB of swap. So if /tmp is full, together with swap the compile process can still allocate 10.5GB of memory (theoretically, as my OS will need some as well ). so memory shouldn’t be a problem, is it?
Actually thinking about it, could the max. of 4GB of /tmp be too small? (Where does the compilation put their temp files and how much size does it need?)
Edit I just retried, failed again after 5 minutes (with the error mentioned before and
df -h showed me a usage of only 1.9MB for
-First test that you uploaded the correct ssh key by doing an ssh to the servere.g. ssh -p 29418 code.fairphone.com
Solved, and newly fetched/syned. No changes were pulled.
-If you run into problems try building a pure AOSP (5.1) first (targeting the nexus for example)
Is there a step-by-step guide somewhere how to do it (I probably can use the same repo url but need other build targets and such, don’t I? I failed to locate the
chosecombo to inspect it.) Sorry for the naive questions, I’m new to android and android development.
If it costs a lot additional disk space I’ll have to wait until I’m back home in two weeks or so and can offload some files.
-The emulator is no supposed to work (at least we never tried) and it is very uncommon to develop using the emulator. It is however possible to install the fairphone apps on any phone and emulator
I believe I didn’t try/use the emulator (at least not consciously).
Atm I have not enough disk space to create an additional VM with Ubuntu 14.04, I would need to wait two weeks or so until I have access to my infrastructure again to offload some files. Is there by chance someone who managed to compiled on Ubuntu 15.10?
