......@@ -56,6 +56,13 @@ We will assume the machine is called "pc1" in the following directions.
(or use "/dev/da0" for SCSI). Image loading should take anywhere from
45 seconds, to several minutes.
If the ssh returns with "Killed" then imageunzip ran out of memory.
By default, imageunzip will consume memory without bound for buffering
of pending disk writes. In this case, retry the imageunzip with
"-W <num-MB>" where <num-MB> is a number of MB maximum to use for
disk buffering. If the node you are loading has 512MB of memory, try
a number like 300.
Now you can begin customizing the FreeBSD and Linux partitions.
