Video and USB fix


Matthew Dillon has written a contiguous memory mapper, which is designed to fix problems with video cards and USB drives that need a big chunk of memory to keep.  This can affect booting or later on, when disconnecting/reconnecting a USB drive.  If this still doesn’t fix the problem for you, try adjusting the sysctl ‘vm.dma_reserved’ to something bigger, like 64M.  It defaults to 16M.
