Description of problem:
Can't increase process limits

I am add to /etc/security/limits.conf follow lines:
*               soft    nproc             4096
*               hard    nproc             4096

but after reboot
$ ulimit -u
Comment 1 Michele Baldessari 2013-08-17 17:20:46 EDT
This works correctly on both F19 and current rawhide. Check:

and make sure nothing conflicting is in there
Comment 2 Mikhail 2013-08-18 01:17:44 EDT
cat /etc/security/limits.d/90-nproc.conf
# Default limit for number of user's processes to prevent
# accidental fork bombs.
# See rhbz #432903 for reasoning.

*          soft    nproc     1024
root       soft    nproc     unlimited

When I change /etc/security/limits.conf and reboot this file not modify?

No it's a different file. 
Please just close this bug, it's just a local misconfiguration
