SubjectRe: Linux FD Limit > 1024
Date

There was talk on the linux-kernel list (added to cc: list by
me) about needing to rebuild libc, and other stuff.

I ran into this once also, and just reverted to the
previous kernel, and left it alone for a bit.

Have you tried rebuilding /sbin/init and linking it static? I
had to do that in some cases, and it worked niceley.

There may be other tricks required, I don't have all the answers
for this, just a "hack".

Perhaps someone can point you at a archive of this list (i quit
maintaining one awhile back, sorry), and you can find the answer
there. (You may also need to ask linux-gcc, the libc folks if I recall
correctly).
