actually, the ss20 with 512mb and 4 cpus just completed building
qemu with -j4.  a few times it was a little swapped, but it was
very rarely doing more than occasional paging vs swapping or
thrashing.  "vmstat 1" rarely showed less than 10% idle, and was
usually 0-3%...

it did take a few days to build all the deps etc.  :-)

i have not yet tested it...


Interesting, perhaps something has changed in the intervening years since I last tried building it in a similar situation. Which targets did you enable in your build?
