Hello all!

Can anyone tell me what is the maximum processess size under linux, and if
there is a way to increase this number? I can't find anything in the
kernel source that would indicate a maximum. (this server runs 2.2.12,
single processor)

The machine in question has 1GB of RAM, and it appears that processes
won't go over 256MB in size. (data gathered by running top).
