Xlib:Maximum number of clients reached
« on: November 12, 2008, 02:12:35 PM »
Hello!
Im running tight VNC on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0.
How can I increase the number of X clients that I can run
in a VNC session?I need to run aproximately 500 programs in one VNC session,
but at this time I can only 236 -> i've tryed to launch 256 xlock's in background
and when it comes to 237, the error Xlib:Maximum number of clients reached
comes out. Please, help me on solving that issue!

I am not sure about it but error is related to X11, you may see /etc/X11/xorg.conf and increase clients limit (it must be somewhere in it). Usually its set to 256.
