Description

The step by step directions at https://www.dragonflybsd.org/docs/handbook/vkernel/ fail because when you attempt to boot the vkernel you never get a shell prompt because the shell is instantly and repeatedly killed due to a never ending stream of "out of swap space" error messages.

Nowadays, 64m is too little for the vkernel to boot. You should use at least 256m and also you can add some swap space make things at least to work.
