While attempting to install the latest version of MC Forge, I came upon a well documented failure, whereby the Gradle installer possessed insufficient memory to decompileMc.
After researching various previously reported errors, such as #324 on github, as well as checking the documentation, I failed to correct the issue. I have created a file named "gradle.properties", saved using UTF8 and alternately located within my Forge src directory and ~/.grade/, containing the line: "org.gradle.jvmargs=-Xmx3G", but to no avail. Throughout this process gradle RAM usage did not exceed 512Mb, despite my efforts to the contrary. My computer posses 8 GB RAM. My logs can be found here , I hope someone here can guide me through a solution. Thanks in advance for your help, hope I did not miss anything obvious.
