How can I set the maxproc limit of cron higher? I set the memory/process
limits higher before starting kwm, so I get higher limits in shells etc.,
but cron still has the original limits and failed to run a task today.
How can I change the limits so that cron works again? I guess I could edit
/etc/rc or some such, but that doesn't sound like the correct way of doing
By the way, if I run this from cron:
it reports maxproc as 160. However, if I do
ps auxww | grep jmarin | wc -l
I only get 116. If I start a few more processes, cron begins to fail -
with still a long way to 160 processes. So what is the problem?
