We see such errors when Chromium in development mode crashes.


Yeah I think Chrome is to blame here :(


Another possible reason is that you don't have enough processes. Chrome
renders each tab in a different process. That means chrome needs a ton
of entries in the process table. To see how many you have, use:

ulimit -a|grep proc

~> ulimit -a|grep proc
max user processes (-u) 1200


The command to check how many processes you use is:

ps -fTu $USER | wc -l

1056

Probably close enough to the limit to cause trouble when opening a few
more tabs and windows.....


If the numbers are close, opening new tabs or terminals can fail because
these operations create many new processes (BASH will need them to
process the information in the start up scripts).

To fix this, add these two lines to /etc/security/limits.conf:

*               hard    nproc           1700
*               soft    nproc           1200

Ahh configuration knobs, cranked up a bit.

Thanks,
Robert
