Comment 2 Martin Bacovsky 2007-08-08 16:00:40 EDT
Yesterday I built iputils-20070202-4.fc8 in RAWHIDE which fix this problem.
Thanks  for patch. I used open_max = sysconf(_SC_OPEN_MAX). Any idea what is
preffered way  of fixing this issue?
Comment 3 Sami Farin 2007-08-08 16:39:35 EDT
Using sysconf is fine, too, but it returns rlim_cur instead of rlim_max.
But nobody probably cares or notices, anyways, and with sysconf you can get away
with smaller number of code lines.

What if returned value is RLIM_INFINITY?
Then user running rdisc might want to fix his/her ulimit.
Comment 4 Martin Bacovsky 2007-08-09 04:25:50 EDT
Well then I close this as duplicate and keep my patch in iputils. Thanks.
