kc0dxf has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am having a problem with out of memory errors. I suspect that it must have something to do with the Debian Perl package or the latest Debian kernel for Lenny (which is 2.6.26). I have 4 servers which are doing the same thing. When I try to load a module via cpan, I get out of memory error. For example: cpan -i CPAN throws the error.
I have tried using ulimit to increase memory. For example I did ulimt -d unlimited but this doesn't fix the problem.
Any ideas on how to figure this out?
