That was some pretty relevant information Ed. Thanks. However upon bumping up my RAM, I don't hit this error anymore perhaps I believe since the relatively large amount of RAM does not necessitate that much of swap space.
Nonetheless, as I have indicated in my previous email, I hit an error quite late in the process now (stage 4.3) when it is apparently linking h_raw.o into h_raw.full ( is this linking by the way? what is the .full file there??)
