exec(2) : text exceeds limits error

Hello All, When I try to run ldd command for a binary file which is more than 10MB, I received following error in my HP-UX 11.23 IPF machine.

$ ldd mysql/libexec/mysqld

exec(2): text exceeds limits
ldd: Cannot execute "/opt/iexpress/mysql/libexec/mysqld", Not enough space.

Original size of "mysql/libexec/mysqld" binary file is ~ 12 MB. ( 12752 KB).

I have attached a file which contains information about kernel values present in my machine with swapinfo and bdf information's.

Please help me to get rid of this error.

Thanks,
Kathir

df -H

The space reference may refer to not having enough disk space to expand the file for execution. Wondering if /usr is full.

I doubt that, but can find nothing in your kernel that jumps out at me as the casue.

Wondering what your shared memory area and message queues look like.

Hello All, Sorry to post this question in linux-general forum. This should go to HP-UX related forum.

Anyway problem was solved byincreasing maxtsiz/maxtsiz_64bit the maximum text size(s) for a process.
