INN FAQ Part 5

NOTE: The maintainers of the INN FAQ stopped publishing in December 1997.
An important update to this topic is provided by Mib Software in the Usenet RKT for Subscribers.

Subject: (5.24) ME cant remalloc xx bytes Cannot allocate memory

This probably means that innd wants to grow bigger than what the
actual limit for a single process is.
To solve this either rebuild your kernel with a different default max,
or add "unlimit datasize" to the beginning on your rc.news file.
On some OS (e.g. FreeBSD 2.1.x) there might be some problems when
using the supplied malloc. Linking with -lgnumalloc helped (after Joe
Greco <jgreco@ns.sol.net>).

For HP-UX see also 'HP-UX tips' in part2 of the FAQ (INN FAQ #2.6).
