That's very interesting -- I should have thought to try using ktrace.

cdrtools doesn't appear to be in the ports tree. However, the mkisofs
that comes with 3.1 is lean enough (leaner than mkhybrid (layman's
observation? opinion?)) that it will make an iso of my /usr/src (if I
add a bit more, I get ``Not enough memory'').
I *was* concerned about my swap staying at zero -- however, I've
concluded that it's working as it should (again, layman's
observation). After removing RAM and stressing the system, she
finally started to claim some swap space with 64 megs of RAM while
making an ISO (and bombing). I feel very silly since my swap
partition is (from memory -- didn't double check) about 2 gigs (I
guess I had room to spare?), and swapctl reported it was using less
than 10 megs ( <blushing> ).
I should add -- this machine that I'm using has/is:
- YP client
- NFS client
- 20G hard drive
- Memory: Real: 44M/77M act/tot Free: 233M
...Hopefully we (won't) hear that other people are having the same
Anyways, I'll try and figure out why one of my other machines with
16megs works just fine...(also YP/NFS client)
