Comment 1 R P Herrold 2006-01-06 11:26:50 EST
I can reproduce this as well -- ask if you need details
Comment 2 Petr Raszyk 2006-01-09 09:17:39 EST
I need details.

I can not set setrlimit() on x86_64 (only on i386). There are traces:

WARNING: try to set setrlimit(RLIMIT_MEMLOCK,64*1024*1024)
service_main(): 798: errno=1: WARNING: Cannot set RLIMIT_MEMLOCK 64*1024*1024
service_main(): 803: errno=1: WARNING: Cannot set RLIMIT_MEMLOCK 32*1024*1024

Comment 3 Petr Raszyk 2006-01-09 09:22:02 EST
started as 'root':  errno == 1 == EPERM

       EPERM  A non-superuser tries to use setrlimit() to increase the soft or
              hard limit above the current hard limit, or a superuser tries to
              increase RLIMIT_NOFILE above the current kernel maximum.
Comment 4 Petr Raszyk 2006-01-09 09:27:03 EST
If I try getrlimit():

+PID=17388: cfr-ntpd.PRO: ntpd.c: service_main(): 785: errno=107: WARNING:
getrlimit(): .rlim_cur=>32768< .rlim_max=>32768<
