If you wish to reuse our builder image instead of installing all the dependencies manually, prefix the `make` make command with `buildbuild/`sh; for example `buildbuild/ make build`build.

Note that the first time you run `make` make, it can take some time to download and install various dependencies. After running `make build` make build, the `cockroach` cockroach executable will be in your current directory and can be run as shown in the Quickstart guide.

Note that if you use the builder image, you should ensure that your Docker installation grants 4GB or more of RAM to containers. On some systems, the default configuration limits containers to 2GB memory usage and this can be insufficient to build/link a CockroachDB executable.
