Comment 1 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2021-11-10 08:07:02 UTC
MAKEOPTS are set to 44 while at the end it compiles sources with -j48:

Compiling source kernels: Launching 48 threads...

Build log is too big for attachment, but I guess you are able to reproduce.

    it respects MAKEOPTS

This is still true with version 5.0.2
if I set MAKEOPTS="-j1" it will launch 12 jobs and it will later crash my system because all RAM and swap are full
I want to set less jobs to consume less memory
