Re: inetd fails with fork: Resource temporarily unavailable

I also saw this problem, see "inetd stops allowing connections after console login" thread.
Unfortunately no one seems to have an explanation or a fix.

It looks like we are getting similar symptoms.

After some investigation I recall that the limit it is a limit on the number of processes that a given process can spawn from itself. However we couldn't quite tie this to the issue of being unable to login because each telnet session seems to
start a new process.

Not much help I'm afraid.
