growisofs error 'unable to anonymously mmap'

Description of problem:
When trying to write a DVD with growisofs I get an error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -V backup -r .
[root@cyberelk backup-Lx7364]# du -sh .
[root@cyberelk backup-Lx7364]# growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -V backup -r .
:-( unable to anonymously mmap 16777216: Resource temporarily unavailable
Worked fine in FC5. Using the growisofs binary from FC5 works fine too.
$ ulimit -l unlimited
'ulimit -l unlimited' as root does work around the problem, yes (thanks!). So
growisofs just needs to have a better fallback than just erroring out..
yep... will update
Didn't work for me. Have the same error message on mine as well. Version from
FC5 works perfectly...version from FC6 gives me:
:-( unable to anonymously mmap 33554432: Resource temporarily unavailable
ulimit -l unlimited doesn't work for me...still get the error above.

a solution for me was to increase the buffersize of growisofs with:
or in k3b under settings - configure k3b - Advanced
- Manual writing buffer size: 16MB
