http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi all, I started getting this message yesterday: "Failed to fork child process (Resource temporarily unavailable)" when I try to open anything in GNOME. The system was sluggish, so I went to Ctrl-Alt-F2 to try and log in as root, and saw some error messages about a disk partition (the one mounted as /var ). Rebooted into a live CD with GParted, (hopefully) fixed it with fsck, rebooted again but now I get the "failed fork" messages again, though with no errors showing about the /var file system. I don't know where to look for problems, and what problems to look for (HowTos)
