How to debug Linux Travis error on using package?

I’m getting the following error on a Travis build of BandedMatrices.jl (https://travis-ci.org/JuliaMatrices/BandedMatrices.jl/jobs/424660000), but only on Linux. This appears to happen on the using stage. Any advice on how to debug it?

Nothing concrete, but you can email the folks at Travis. In my experience they are very helpful about providing you with 24hrs of ssh access so you can directly debug it in a persistent session.

Yes I did that. It was an out of memory error due to a compile using 7 gigs. I’ve worked around it but hopefully 1.1 will be a bit more compile time friendly…
