Hi, I used the rc.conf values as set out in rc,conf(5)
root at claire# grep crash /etc/defaults/rc.conf
dumpdev="NO" # Device to crashdump to (device name, AUTO, or NO).
dumpdir="/var/crash" # Directory where crash dumps are to be stored
I set dumpdev to my swap partition, although nothing got dumped,
although I did upgrade it to -CURRENT as i'd exhausted everything else,
and its not crashed since, not wishing to flame/troll/whatever, but 6.x
seems to have a fair few issues.
