Subject: lshell: default limits uselessly low
X-Mailer: reportbug 1.50

Delivered-To: submit@bugs.debian.org

Package: lshell
Version: N/A; reported 2002-09-21
Severity: normal

The default limits for lshell v2.01-11 are set for 24 open files and 30
processes. This is not enough for a user to have multiple sessions or
even run a single copy of mozilla.

If the admin doesn't realize lshell is installed, its very difficult
to figure out where these mysterious limits are coming from. You can't even
grep for it; the numbers which appear in "ulimit -a" are abreviated in
/etc/lshell.conf and lshell doesn't make a note of its presence in any
of the standard locations for adjusting system rlimits (e.g.
/etc/limits, /etc/security/limits.conf).

This renders the system effectively unusable if lshell is installed by
mistake (e.g. during an upgrade when you're yessing everything that
comes by).

Suggested fixes: Set the defaults near the normal parameters for a debian
linux system. Tweak system limits.conf with a comment to the effect that
additional control is provided by lshell.conf.
