Hi all,
I'm running RH 7.1 and am getting the following error when trying to su to another user from the super user when running an xterm window under both gnome and kde (doesn't occur if running directly from the terminal):
#su postgres
file size limit reached
Any idea what file this is referring to and which conf file would have the limit hard coded? Also, if no-one can answer that question, how about this as a bandaid fix - is it possible to jump from Xwindows to a terminal and back again via the function keys or some other mechanism?

Check your hard drive space. You can use the df command. That's kind of a wierd error because you are allowed to have files up to 12 tb's in size. Might want to try using su -l postgres
as far as switch to a console while in Xwindows, no problem. just hit ctrl-alt-F2, or any other F key up to 7. F7 is the one that xwindows is on, if you logged in via command line and then ran startx, F1 will be the console you logged in on and 7 the one X is on
