Let me try again, and I will try to be as clear as I can.

I showed you an excerpt from /etc/login.conf for i386. There are two lines that mention values for datasize. Please note, one says "cur" for "current", the other says "max" for "maximum":

Your datasize is still only 512M, because you did not raise it to the 2GB maximum:

Here is a "howto" to raise your datasize to the 2GB maximum.

I have a user in the staff class using the ksh(1) shell, and I set the datasize using ulimit -d to 2GB. I then try to add one more MB and receive a failure notice.
