Hi. I just regained use of my system after 'make bootstrap' of gcc-4.1.1, with
uClibc-0.9.28 and linux-126.96.36.199, when it consumed all resources for about 30
minutes, and slowly gave resources back for 20 minutes after. I had a load
average of 8 (new record), used all 1GB of ram, used all 1GB of swap, and all
3ghz of cpu.
I would like to suggest we start using 'nice -n 19 su - hlfs', and 'nice -n
19 /tools/bin/bash' for chroot, unless anyone has objections.
