Ruby on Rails Thursday, January 31, 2013

I am unable to install RoR on a VPS running RedHat Linux with 512 MB. When I run "make" and "make install" I get the following output/error below. What can I do to resolve this memory problem? 

It appears I should have sufficient memory to install. I included the results of "make" and "free" to show the failure as well as the available memory.

Thanks in advance!
