Oracle 12c installation will fail: Error in invoking target ‘irman ioracle’

During the installation of Oracle 12c (12.1) I encountered the following error:

Error in invoking target 'irman ioracle' of makefile
    '/u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk'.
See '/u01/app/oraInventory/logs/installActions2015(...).log' for details.

Inside the logfile the following error is encountered:

INFO: collect2: ld terminated with signal 9 [Killed]

According to metalink doc 2040972.1 this is due to less memory available (in a VM environment).

Need more memory

I indeed had ‘not much’ memory (2GB) for my VM in Oracle VM and after increasing the memory to 3GB and relinking, irman and ioracle where build!
Relink with:

cd $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin
/usr/bin/make -f $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk ioracle
/usr/bin/make -f $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib/ins_rdbms.mk irman

Happy relinking!
