Take a look at config.log to see why it is failing. In some versions of
ubuntu/debian, you need to pass the following option to configure:


Thank you, this solve the sparsehash issue. I also tried it on the server but the old gcc still fails.

You need slightly more than 4GB to compile graph-tool, unfortunately. If
you have around 6GB with swap, make sure there is nothing else consuming
much memory, and that the compilation is not being done in parallel
(i.e. do not use make -j2 or similar).

If you still cannot compile it, you can try using the clang compiler. It
is also available for ubuntu, and it should use only about half as much

I'll try this tonight.
