Ok, I installed a swap file on my nfs drive. Here's the one problem
however. Prior to adding the swap file, the dreamcast only crashed once,
when it ran out of memory. Now whenever i try to compile something in
ports, and it hits the swap file at all, the dreamcast falls apart like a
house of cards. Is there any obvious config error that would cause this
type of thing?
