Ulimit


Hi, I have a problem I am not sure how to solve. I want to give a certain user more resources than to other users in her group. How can I edit /etc/security/limits.conf in order to accomplish that?

See the manual page. Lines in limits.conf can be applicable to all users, to a group or to a single user by setting the domain.

Hi, I understand, but if i have user jack, who is a member of group @jack, and his group is set at 5 logins, and I set jack at unlimited number of logins, would his individual settings ALWAYS override the group settings for him? Manual says "in general".

In common human language, you can interpret "in general" as "mostly", but in this case I am sure it means literally "in general", that is "in all cases for which no explicit exception is stated".
