Subject: System freeze while building john(bleeding) on Laptop.


CPU: AMD A8 4500M with 2 piledriver modules(4 cores)
OS: Kubuntu 14.04

Using: make clean --makefile=Makefile.legacy  linux-x86-64-opencl.

The build process use all cores and RAM usage hits alarming levels,
spilling over to swap space.  The HDD may not be such a good conditions and
might be the cause of system hangs.

Is there a way to minimize the number of core use and memory use during
build process?
