    Subjectfork: out of memory (2.0.30/SMP/deadlock patch 5)
    Hi,

    my problem: our mail, news, and uucp server shows the error message
    "fork: out of memory" although there is lots of swap space left. No
    login was possible. Fortunately we have "procinfo -n2" running on one
    console showing the following infos:

    Mem total: 127952, used 125724, free 2228, shared 59344, buffers
    32756, cached 13672.

    Swap total: 123032, used 48, free 122984.

    Load: 65.00/61.43/40.72, 2/137 (none of this numbers changed within 15
    minutes) -- btw, why says the load that there are 65 processess
    running the last five minutes while there are only 2 procs ready to
    run?

    Hardware: 2x P5-166, GA586DX (Adaptec 2940UW on board), 128 MB RAM, 1x
    2 GB SCSI disk, 2x 6.2 GB EIDE disks.

    Software: Linux 2.0.30/SMP, filehandle patch to increase the 256 fd
    limit, smp deadlock patch #5.

    What's the problem with that machine?

    Thanks for your hints,

    Stephan
