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.
