@xiran_li I am encountering the same issue. How did you fix it?

have you checked the npm and nodejs version ?

@xiran_li I installed the latest LTS 10.6.3 node and npm, also the latest release. I ran npm audit fix and then make. It’s taking a long time to build then I would receive something like your error and make process killed. I checked the CPU utilization and it is at 100% even with AWS 30gb t2 micro instance (free tier). I’m just curious how were you able to fix yours? Thanks a lot.
