Build error

Hello,

I am building LLVM with ninja on Linux environment and I continue to have the error below. I am thinking that the cause might be my PC not having sufficient RAM memory. In this sense, I extended my swap memory with a swap file (90GB), but it didn’t solved the problem. Should I add more physical RAM memory to my PC, or is there any software based solution I can try first?

Thank you and looking forward for your answer.
Kind regards,
Iulia

You could try running with a different linker.

use the cake flag -DCMAKE_LINKER=/path/to/linker with either gnu gold or llvm’s lld
