Can someone see what's wrong with this picture? I used the PC-BSD
installer which had features that I needed that didn't end up working.
But I JUST noticed the size of my swap partition after noticing my
root partition is 72% full.. My question is, who the fuck decided to
make a 9G swap partition and only a 1G root partition?

Installer fail. That teaches me to use a non freebsd installer when
loading a production system *sigh* now I either have to deal with it
as is or load up a livefs and so some filesystem molestation in some
risky maneuvers. Thanks guys.
