My head is hurting trying to increase limits in SuSE 9.1. In /etc/pam.d/login
session required pam_limits.so
and in /etc/security/limits.conf I have:
* soft nproc 8192
* hard nproc 16384
* soft nofile 30000
* hard nofile 65536
which AIUI should be what's required. However, when I login soft limits are
still set to some lower values, which I can't change.
ls -lu seems to indicate that neither /etc/security/limits.conf nor /lib/
security/pam_limits.so are being read and lsof doesn't show /lib/security/
pam_limits.so to be opened by any process, although quite a few other /lib/
security/pam_XXXX.so files are.
Do any of you have an idea what I might be missing here ?
