If Zope is started in a shell with $ ulimit -n 200 and I POST the offending form, I get a "too many open files" error. But if ulimit -n 512, then I get "No such file or directory" when $ZOPE/lib/python/tempfile.py tries to fdopen a file descriptor higher than 255 (line 155).
my /etc/system doesn't have anything other than some shm settings. Can you create a form: <form method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data"> <input type="submit" value="Click me to test FD's"> <dtml-in "_.range(500)"> <input type=text name="input_<dtml-var sequence-number>" value="<dtml-var sequence-number>"> </dtml-in> </form> and tell me if you get the OSError? _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
