e2fsck killed?

(Debian) zuk:~# e2fsck -f /dev/sdb1
e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
Pass 1: Checking inodes, blocks, and sizes
Error allocating directoryKilled

Looks like this is wishful thinking..  Some remaining options are to
run all these operations under OpenWRT, to see if memory usage can be
kept lower.

Anyways, it's possible to run e2fsck with a switch to use less memory.
On the Ubuntu PC it uses RES size = 187m.
