osm2pgsql hangs on first "NOTICE"


Disclaimer: Somewhat of a noob at this.

I’m attempting to import a South Sudan map (32MB) in to my osm server. Currently I only have North American and a few select countries loaded. I have ran this command successfully before and the maps loaded.

Server Stats:
Ubuntu 12.04.4
32GB HDD & 21GB available

My Command and output are the following:

osm2pgsql --append --slim --database gis --cache 3000 --number-processes 3 SS.pbf -e 15 -o SSexpire.list
osm2pgsql SVN version 0.81.0 (64bit id space)

Using projection SRS 900913 (Spherical Mercator)
Setting up table: planet_osm_point
NOTICE: table “planet_osm_point_tmp” does not exist, skipping

It stays there for hours and does nothing. I look at the processes but cannot figure out what it is making it hang. Lots of free resources.
All the troubleshooting online seems to run through the ‘skipping’ piece quickly and get an error further in to the process. Other documentation is chaotic at best.

I also tried running -v to see if it would generate any more info but the output is the same.

postgres logs says nothing
system log says nothing
Are there any error logs?

Appreciate any help!
