loader2/modules.h:
...
struct moduleList_s {
    struct loadedModuleInfo mods[50];
    int numModules;
};
...

Discovered this when loader --test was crashing very very early with a
blown stack.

You're loading 50 modules?  You're crazy ;-)
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-01-28 17:05:30 EST
I'm running in test mode. I have 55 modules loaded.

Blame ALSA. :)
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-09-21 16:44:13 EDT
Not going to fix this until it becomes a problem in real installs
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-21 16:54:29 EDT
Hm, perhaps I should have closed this when I committed the patch in February 2004.
