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