Re: how to change ulimit permanenlty

Hi,

I found what I have to do. But my current problem is the nofiles values shows for CDE enviornment. I already put all value in .dtprofile. But it shows correct for all value except nofiles.

Any idea ?

Just add your ulimit commands in ~/.profile, it will effective upon login.

CDE is probably using dtksh, which seems to work.
If using ksh, you need to invoke "/usr/bin/ulimit -a"
