Ubuntu: crash while compiling opencv


I'm currently trying to install opencv-3.0.0 on ubuntu 14.04 as per these instructions:


Everything works fine until I have to run the make command. It gets to around 33% done and then my computer crashes. I'm new to ubuntu and don't really know how to go about troubleshooting this problem. I'm assuming it's got something to do with the hardware I'm using and not necessarily the os. Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Your CPU is probably overheating. It was crashing for me too when I was compiling it using 4 cores make -j 4, once I used only a single core make -j 1, the compilation completed successfully.
