Quartus 19.2 Ubuntu 16.04 stuck generating HDL

For some reason Quartus keeps getting stuck generating HDL - the progress bar states "Done reading input file" and the last message in the log is an info message reading "Finished: Create HDL design files for synthesis". I can't shut the window, if I hit the stop button it greys out and nothing happens - all the while a background Java process is still doing *something* on one of the CPU cores.

 

This is highly frustrating when trying to generate a design and there are no apparent error messages to detail what is going amiss.

 

Any and all suggestions are appreciated, thanks.

I have found the issue - the HDL generation process is munching RAM - my system is only running with 16GB. When the Java process runs out of RAM it generates a log file in the project directory stating as such but Quartus just freezes and does nothing. Should probably have a hook to Quartus to notify the user of the problem and shut down smoothly.

Pro 19.2 - Arria 10 GX Dev Kit is my target. I can confirm that with a system RAM upgrade there are no further issues.

Are you using windows system? Windows 10? If you press ctrl +alt+delete would be able to close(end task) the quartus?

Ubuntu 16.04. I can kill Quartus and related Java processes yes. I imagine the result would be essentially the same on Windows if the system runs out of RAM.
