hi wondered if anyone can help:-

O/S  S.u.s.e linux 6.0
kernel 2.0.36
postgres 6-4-2 

I'm trying to increase the maximum number of connections  on the operating
system which invovles altering the SOMAXCONN and patching certain files. I've
done that but im still limited by postgres. I found that the ./configure file
was pulling in a different version of socket.h from the operating system. After
altering that I still had the same problem.  I've also increase the
MaxBackendID and that still doesn't help. Is there any
more documentation on SOMAXCONN or has anybody else had this problem. I know
unix based O/S's have 128 connections but I need to increase this considerably.
Currently im aming for about 512 connections. Is there any draw backs I should
be aware of? any help on this is greatly appreciated. 

Thanks guys n gals,
