You don't have to rebuild your kernel to raise the maximum data segment size. Just set kern.maxdsiz in /boot/loader.conf and boot with the new setting. > How can I do to fix this issue, any hints ? Increasing kern.maxdsiz and checking that the user limits are not still set to 512 MB may help a bit, but if the program still tries to allocate enormous amounts of memory I'm not sure if this is going to help a lot. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
