Weird crash

Post by X11 » Thu May 05, 2005 1:38 am

I don't know if this exactly consitutes a crash, but nonetheless - processes and applications stopped responding and other things on my system just before. When I went to use xkill from a terminal it shown me the problem...

Code: Select all

[x11@kintaro nicotine-1.0.8]$ xkill
bash: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable
I then got an error like this from another program that stopped responding...
Traceback (most recent call last):

Code: Select all

  File "/home/x11/dev/nicotine-1.0.8/pynicotine/gtkgui/frame.py", line
308, in OnNetworkEvent
    self.np.events[i.__class__](i)
  File "/home/x11/dev/nicotine-1.0.8/pynicotine/pynicotine.py", line
332, in ConnectError
    timer.start()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/threading.py", line 410, in start
    _start_new_thread(self.__bootstrap, ())
thread.error: can't start new thread
Anyone have any ideas what would cause an error like this?

Didnt you change some ulimit settings when everyone was getting their panties in a twist about possible forkbombs?
