I have a ThinkPad R60 9461-DXG with 2 GB RAM, standard 100 GB HDD and running dual-boot Windows 10 + LMDE 3 64-bit. I’ve been trying to build ROOT 6.14.00 on Linux for two weeks now, but around 25-35% the system slows down until it seems to freeze up completely. I’ve tried enabling/disabling swap, building with 1 and 2 cores etc., but the problem persists. Could it be that the laptop is simply too old?
I’ve ordered a 4 GB RAM upgrade now… Any advice is much appreciated.
