This seems to be the problem        ^^^
If you don't pick one of the defaults, you must manually initialize RVM
using the rdsinit program, as this message indicates :

Picking 130M would probably be the easier way.

This server should be failing to start due to its RVM data area not being
/vice/srv/SrvErr and /vice/srv/SrvLog should give some indication of this.
