Subject: Re: changing/fixing the tarballs in the butch

Firefox just compiles until it runs out of something.  It didn't run out of
disk space yesterday but finally ran out of some IO somewhere, but it did
run out of ram the day before compiling it and I realized I hadn't added my
swap partition to fstab, and that time it said specifically that it was a
memory problem.

Also, butch keeps rebuilding things that are already installed.  Is this
something that happens to you?

I'm also on an x86_64 machine so there must be something different if
you're not having these problems.  If I can't figure it out in the next
couple, I'll start again and see if these problems come up in the chroot
environment, as it could be something in how I've loaded it on my hard
drive, and/or configured my kernel, the system etc, though that seems kind
of odd.
