What system do you have? What DragonFly version are you running? Is it
SMP or UP?
What's the "crash" (I assume panic?) about? Can you get a core dump or
at least a backtrace? You could do so by typing "trace" at the db>
prompt. For the former, you'd type "call dumpsys".

My system has been running 'make -j3 Buildword ' for an eternity now .
Worst -the make buildword causes the kernel to crash after 3-4 hours .
And it seems the make command does not continue from where it stopped
the last time instead it rebuilds the entire tree . Am i doing something
wrong .Is there a config file for buildwprld where i can change this
Well i got it right now . I's running it on a VBox(UP) and it had too
little memory i guess . And sorry for using the term crash there , the
make process was actually stopped because it ran out of memory and swap
. There's a shell after i pressed the Ctrl-c . So the problem was not
with the kernel . Then i increased the memory to 512M and the process
was completed in 9 hours .
