I am trying to instantiate a Julia project environment in a virtual linux machine. I copy the relevant Project.toml, and the Pkg system sees it correctly. However, when I type
instantiate I keep getting the errors similar to the one quoted below indicating that it cannot allocate memory.
The virtual machine has 8Gb RAM and nothing else is running so that the system monitor indicates less than 1GB is in use. It doesn’t seem like the system would need 7GB RAM to install a few relatively small package files - any idea what might be going on?
