Default File Size Exceeded problem in GAMBIT

Hi !

I'm trying to open a GAMBIT .dbs file but GAMBIT crashes with the message "File Size Exceeded". This happens only with one file, the other files open without a problem. The sys. admin. wrote back that there is no restriction on the file size on the system. Can anybody help ?

How is your harddisk space? I've had this problem too, and had to go in and clean up the disks. Its always good to get rid of extra GAMBIT.'processid' files and definitely 'core' dump files because they're just taking up space on the harddisk after they've served their respective purposes.

Prateep,

This message is not produced by Gambit itself, so it must be coming from the operating system. The first step is to make sure you have enough free disk space, as Aaron Bird suggested. If that does not fix the problem, then contact your Fluent technical support engineer (Jay Sanyal, js@fluent.com, according to our records) and send to him the output of the commands below. (NOTE: The following code assumes that you are using UNIX and csh. Not all of the following commands work on all systems.) Jay may also need your Gambit database.

Regards, Scott

I checked my diskspace (used "/sbin/ulimit -a") and there indeed is a restriction on the size of a file that I can create. The sys admin had used the command logged in as root and had sent me the output from the command which showed unlimited file size.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions.
