When I clone the kernel source, I encounter a fatal error.

I used to run 'git clone --depth=1' to get kernel source, because this
way is very lightweight. But today, I want to clone the whole git
repository with 'git clone

Then, I encounter a problem.

The output is :

Cloning into 'linux-stable'...
remote: Counting objects: 5531619, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (492978/492978), done.
error: index-pack died of signal 9531619), 777.26 MiB | 19.22 MiB/s
fatal: index-pack failed

I do this on my VPS which has 768M memory. Is it because the memory is
not enough? If so, is it possible to limit the memory usage of Git?
