Hi,
I am trying to install grpc for c++. I'm following the tutorial from the main page:
https://grpc.io/docs/languages/cpp/quickstart/
And at the moment when I use the commands one causes the problem:
$ mkdir -p cmake/build
$ pushd cmake/build
$ cmake -DgRPC_INSTALL=ON
      -DgRPC_BUILD_TESTS=OFF
      -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$MY_INSTALL_DIR \N-.
      ../..
$ make -j <----- of this command
$ make install
$ popd

At about 70% my system crashes and I can't do anything. I am using Ubuntu 20.10 does anyone know what can cause this problem. I tried installing on two different computers and on each there was this problem.

Please provide a verbose log of cmake and make with the crash message so we can try to help.

Also, if your system crashes or becomes unresponsive, it usually means you've overloaded your computer. The `make -j` command will spawn many subprocesses to build faster. Try either specifying a number there (like `make -j 4`), or removing the `-j` option altogether, in order to impose less load on your computer.
