How did you get it to boot the DFly kernel? The boot kernel is selected in the 
hypervisor, not by GRUB or a similar bootloader. Maybe that's why they don't 
support DFly. In Ubuntu and other Linux distros, the kernel is provided as a 
package, while in DFly kernel and world are compiled from source and are 
separate from packages.

Also, how come you got a swap partition? My Linux droplet doesn't have a swap 
partition. If I want swap, I have to create a swap file in the single disk
