Dear Morello Technical Forum,
I followed the walkthrough video from Linaro (https://www.morello-project.org/resources/morello-platform-model-and-android-stack-walkthrough/) to install and bring up the nano Android stack on the Morello FVP.
Everything went as expected until I reached the Android stack build step where I received a FAILED message, as per the below snapshot:
"soong bootstrap failed with: exist status 1
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed."
My host machine is a 2006 MacBook running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS.
Any help you could provide will be gratefully received.

The system journal output confirms that the build failure is caused by the "OOM killer".
While the 292GB of disk space should certainly be sufficient for the build, 3.8GB of RAM wouldn't be enough unfortunately.
> Would I stand a better chance if I had a go at the build script on a machine with 8GB RAM available?
The official minimum requirement at the moment is 16GB RAM.It certainly depends on the overall configuration and it might work with 8GB RAM, however it would be difficult to guarantee that in general case.
