Summary0003042: limits.conf warnings inconsistent
DescriptionThere are two ways to warn the user about his limits.conf settings, a popup (gtk2_ardour/ and stdout.

The popup appears if memlock is set to anything lower than 3/4 of the available memory.
stdout apparently warns whenever limits.conf is set to anything but unlimited, even if the number specified in limits.conf is equal to the total available memory.
It seems to simply check for 'unlimited' but I don't know where this code resides.

I think this should be consistent with the popup, whatever the correct figure might be.
Additional Informationardour 2.8.6 on Arch Linux, pure 64bit system.
TagsNo tags attached.

Sorry for the long delay:

$ ardour
WARNING: Your system has a limit for maximum amount of locked memory!
         This might cause Ardour to run out of memory before your system runs
         out of memory. You can view the memory limit with 'ulimit -l', and it
         is normally controlled by /etc/security/limits.conf

$ ulimit -l

According to top my memory total is:

No idea where I got the above figure from..
