Android Studio build problem on Debian (Jessie) linux

Am trying to run Studio 2.1.3 on an Atom netbook with 1GB RAM. Oracle JDK 1.8. The build (of a virtually barebones project) never completes with the following exception in the console. I've googled this and there are many suggested solutions, none of which has helped me. Perhaps someone with a similar build environment can help?

Executing tasks: [clean, :app:generateDebugSources, :app:mockableAndroidJar, :app:prepareDebugUnitTestDependencies, :app:generateDebugAndroidTestSources]

Configuration on demand is an incubating feature.
Incremental java compilation is an incubating feature.

Can you add 1GB RAM to make it 2GB RAM?

1024x600 is my resolution

Atom netbook? I tried that once. You need WAY more processing power than that. Way more. Java may be free, but it does not come cheap.

There are other requirements such as RAM and screen resolution.
