Trouble shooting

Limit of the maximum locked memory

When you start Ardour you may get this warning message:

  • 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

To avoid this you have to edit the limits.conf

  • sudo gedit /etc/security/limits.conf

and add this line to it

  • @audio                -       memlock         unlimited

To activate this change you also have to edit /etc/pam.d/common-session:

  • sudo gedit /etc/pam.d/common-session

adding the line

  • session required pam_limits.so

Now you need to relogin and the warning message should be gone.
