emerge --sync problem while installing gentoo

It's my first install and I get a emerge --sync problem
It looks like it starts ok; I can receive about 100000 files, but then it says "__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x1f0/0)" a bunch of times and after that "VM: killing process rsync"

Does anyone know what the problem is???

Not enough memory???

thats what it looks like, when you configure a kernel there is an option to have the kernel kill a process in an out of memory condition.

how much mem do you have?

I just checked it and it says 28 MB. Strange...

Probably not enough?

*edit: ok, I checked it and I need at least 64 MB. Damn, I'm gonna have to find myself a better testcomputer. Thanks for the fast response.
