Spitballing here; I'm not a guix expert but a C++ guy.

Have you tried limiting the number of cores used for the build?
If I read it correctly that would be "cores=n"

Kodi is a large C++ project and unfortunately these can take a lot of RAM to compile these days.
Max RAM usage roughly scales linearly with the cores used in the build.

Dear all,

I have an amd64 system with 2 GiB RAM.  I try to install Kodi [1], but
it fails with

guix package -u .

Before this happens, the 2 GiB of RAM and 4 GB of swap space are both
fully utilised.

Does anyone have a tip, beyond adding more RAM?


Of course, it would be better if there is a newer Kodi Guix package,
and even better if there's a substitute of it.
