Vagrant: increase default resources for VM

Without setting any defaults, it seems to give 1024MB of memory and 2
CPUs. That low of memory can (and does) result in the VM swapping itself
to death when doing some things. I'm going to set a reasonable amount in
the Vagrantfile, and update the docs to explain how to raise/lower it if
necessary (and recommend a minimum).

  • For now if I have an existing box should I just manually increase the specs via Virtualbox directly? Because I did experience a strange issue today which was fixed by a VM reboot.

    Oh, but upon vagrant up it will overwrite those manual changes, correct? So I guess I will just add these lines to my local Vagrantfile.

  • You shouldn't need to manually add the lines, you can just pull down the new commits from GitLab with git pull origin master (assuming it doesn't cause a conflict with something else you've added).

    Then it'll get added to your Vagrantfile, and should apply next time the Vagrant box starts/restarts. You can restart a running one with vagrant reload.

  • Actually sorry, it would probably be upstream instead of origin if you're set up on your own fork like it describes in this section of the dev setup docs:

    The "Syncing a fork" link in there should explain how to sync up with the new changes from upstream.
