Default Netbsd per process memory limit?


I am trying to run a solaris binary in netbsd sparc 5.2.1 in qemu. But the application is failing with the error 'UNIX ERR:malloc:Not enough space'.

Can some body suggest any solutions? I am able to run apps up to 255MB memory. Above that it is failing.

I believe recompile kernel will solve the issue but not sure where is these memory settings

You probably have to raise the datasize in /etc/login.conf
Don't forget to run cap_mkdb after making the change. You also will need to log out and log in again
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

Thanks. I tried that but still same error.

here is the login.conf snippet.

# ath=/usr/bin /bin /usr/sbin /sbin /usr/X11R7/bin /usr/X11R6/bin /usr/pkg/bin /usr/pkg/sbin /usr/local/bin:\
# :umask=022:\
# :maxproc-max=256:\
# :maxproc-cur=64:\
# penfiles-cur=128:\
# :stacksize-cur=8M:\

# Settings used by /etc/rc and root
# This must be set properly for daemons started as root by inetd as well.
# Be sure reset these values back to system defaults in the default class!
The error is

sbrk: grow failed, error = 12
UNIX ERR:malloc:Not enough space
