Gnome config daemon gconfd-2 running out of file descriptors

view full story

http://www.unix.com – Hello, I need to increase the maximum number of open files for the Gnome configuration daemon, /usr/lib/gconfd-2. There is one of these for each username, no matter how many sessions they've got. We have lots of people using DTUs to log into a Sun Ray server using the same account (bad idea, I know, but it wasn't my bad idea), and we are hitting the default limit of 256, as confirmed by errors in /var/opt/SUNWut/log/messages, and by counting the number of descriptors in /proc/<pid>/fd. The server is running Solaris 10 x86. So what's the best way to increase the limit? I want to do it (HowTos)
