|I am experiencing the same problems. I ran eclipse over night and since than |
"Too many Files error" after working some minutes, that leads to not being able to store changes and a broken workspace.
I it tried to raise the local limit, but ulimit -n 2000, which is the doubled value, but that does not change anything.
You are setting the 'soft' limit, not the 'hard' limit as with 'ulimit -Hn 2000'. But it doesn't seem to work anyway: I enlarged the hard limit from 8192 to 16384 (soft limit is 1024), but after the java process used file descriptor 8191 the problem occurred again.
|I can not restart, did that help for you? I can not restart here!|
When closing Eclipse the file descriptors are freed, so restarting helps.
