The kernel imposes a hard limit on datasize that defaults to 512M (which is pretty small nowadays). You can raise it by adding "kern.maxdsize=4G" to /boot/loader.conf and rebooting. You can use "kern.maxssize" to adjust the hard stack limit, but it's rare that soemone needs to go above the default 64M. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
