I have been trying to compile Cherokee web server using MinGW.
Currently it is working with a customized Makefile, but I would like
to make it works with the generated by the configure script.
I have found a problem trying to execute automake. Perl needs lot
of memory to parse the Makefile.am files, and it gets out of memory
before write down all the Makefiles.
alo@... ~/cherokee$ ulimit -a
core file size (blocks) unlimited
data seg size (kbytes) unlimited
file size (blocks) unlimited
open files 256
pipe size (512 bytes) 8
stack size (kbytes) 2046
cpu time (seconds) unlimited
max user processes 63
virtual memory (kbytes) 2097152
alo@... ~/cherokee$ ./autogen.sh
Running aclocal -I m4...
Out of memory during request for 516 bytes, total sbrk() is 263321600 bytes!
The machine is plenty of memory, so it should not be a problem at
all (This code is working on Linux in much smaller boxes).
Does someone know how can I allow perl to use more memory?
