   I have 8G swap space.

   Does it matter where .SlackBuild points?

   What is the role of tmpfs during a SlackBuild? If there's sufficient disk
space is tmpfs used at all? I understand that it functions like a RAM disk,
but if there's ~6G RAM available for the build, and the swap space, why does
it crash the machine?

   I'm trying to understand so I can avoid the inconvenience of a reboot.
