I can’t get ulimit -l unlimited to “stick” - I’ve tried sudo ulimit -l unlimited - that doesn’t work. I’ve tried setting it as superuser, but my regular users accounts don’t pick it up. I tried setting:
/etc/security/limits.conf is the right file to modify; did you
logout/login after doing that? ulimit is a per-session/shell setting so
setting it as sudo, or setting it in one shell and then launching a
program in another, will not help… kind of like any environment variable
I tried the hard limit first, then when that didn’t do it, I added the soft limit line. Something is messed up here - is there a way to diagonse? The only way I was able to get ‘unlimited’ to be reported by ulimit -l was to do it as superuser, but it didn’t seem to affect my normal user(s). And I can’t run my software as superuser.
