When attempting to run RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails assets:precompile as per, compilation fails without any error code:

Webpacker is installed 
Using /home/mastodon/live/config/webpacker.yml file for setting up webpack paths
Compilation failed:

There are multiple newlines, but no explanation as to why compilation failed, so it does not look like an OOM error or permissions error at first glance.

After about the fifth run without any changes, it finally did return an error - an out-of-memory error. So this issue is not with the software, and I'm closing this issue.

Future Googlers: 1GB of memory is not enough to precompile assets!

Does anyone have any tips on how to precompile the assets on another machine, and then move them out to my server?
