/* Optional: How to increase swap space on a machine with 1gb of ram:
free #check if swap is 0 then do this:
sudo fallocate -l 1G /swapfile
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1024 count=1048576
sudo chmod 600 /swapfile
sudo mkswap /swapfile
sudo swapon /swapfile
sudo nano /etc/fstab
#add this line:
/swapfile swap swap defaults 0 0
#save the file
sudo swapon --show
free #check - should be 1G

Q: What if I receive an error during ./ Libtoolize failed AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS([build-aux/m4]) conflicts with ACLOCAL.AMFLAGS=-I build-aux/m4?
A: This is because some files were downloaded from git with CRLF. Fix with:
find . -name \*.m4|xargs dos2unix
find . -name \*.ac|xargs dos2unix
find . -name \*.am|xargs dos2unix
find . -name \*.sh|xargs dos2unix
