OK, I upgraded my machine to 384Mb of RAM this morning.  Haven't had a
chance to change the swap partition but according to vmstat I am barely
utilizing the swap I have.

I thought it may have fixed the problem but my machine just rebooted.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to see the error but my guess is that it was a
panic again.  The strange thing was that this time the machine was idle, I
wasn't even working on it at the time??

Another curious thing.  FTP and HTTP for apt only work if I export ftp_proxy
and http_proxy respectively.  I cannot even ftp on the local subnet without
it segfaulting unless I export ftp_proxy.  Is there a chance I have
something misconfigured?

Using the proxy I was able to do apt update, dist-upgrade which I was hoping
would help my problem but it's still hosed.

Also ping and cvs still return me to the prompt with no output...

HELP ME!!!! :-)
