Ubuntu :: Memory Error When Installing Python - Cannot Allocate Memory

I get this error when I run "sudo apt-get install python-software-properties"

Preconfiguring packages ...
dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
fork failed: Cannot allocate memory
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

I'm trying to install deluge via ssh and my vps has 512mb ram and is only using 11% of it prior to running the code.

Server :: Error - Unable To Fork: Cannot Allocate Memory
While Apache is off, then everything is OK, but if I start apache server after some time I get messages "Unable to fork: Cannot allocate memory" when trying to do some commands with ssh(dir,rm,top and so on).

P.S. There is free RAM when I get that message.

This is on a VPS with 256mb memory. vmstat and /prov/meminfo both show that over 200mb is free.

Ubuntu :: Error: Allowed Memory Size Of 20971520 Bytes Exhausted (tried To Allocate 7680 Bytes) In /var/www/index.php On Line 2
I recently had to move to a new machine, everything went well except for one thing. I did fresh installation of LAMP server all with default configs. Every time I'm using PHP script to that invokes include, require or require_once I get the following error:

Code: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 20971520 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7680 bytes) in /var/www/index.php on line 2 index.php file: PHP Code:
icukapi.php file:
PHP Code:

My memory_limit in php.ini is set to 20M. I tried to increase that however it didn't quite work. PHP seems to allocate all possible space and return that message every time i try. If somebody has an idea of how to fix it I would be more than grateful. I spend quite a long time searching for an answer however the all things i found suggested increating memory_limit which in this case doesn't work.

General :: "error=12, Cannot Allocate Memory"
I am hosted on a VPS (OpenVZ) with:
Memory: 3gb
Burst: 3gb
OS: Cent OS 5 32 bit
Java Version:


java version "1.6.0_17"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.7.10) (rhel-1.20.b17.el5-i386)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 14.0-b16, mixed mode)

I am receiving an error when I start bukkit (a minecraft server software). I have properly installed java. And I am in the correct directories.

java -Xms512m -Xmx2600m -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui

After doing that command I get the following:


[root@server1 Minecraft]# java -Xms2600m -Xmx2600m -jar craftbukkit.jar nogui
146 recipes
16 achievements


Do notice the line in the above quote ""sh": error=12, Cannot allocate memory."

The server will generate a world, but you can not connect to it using the MC client. Does anyone know what the problem is? I have googled for this problem for literally the past 4 hours and I am getting no where.

Ubuntu :: How To Allocate Memory To Program?
I am running BWA (burrow-wheeler alignment) and, keep getting an error that there isn't enough memory allocated. How do I change the memory allocation? I'm working on a good quality desktop only a little over a year old, so having the memory shouldn't be the problem.

General :: Allocate The Use Of The Memory?
I'm running a quite complex model, and it's taking me around a week to complete the run, and one of my colleagues says that he can run it in one-two days. After looking to several forums to know how does it work, I've seen how the memory is used (using the command ps -A --sort -rss -o comm,pme), and the model run just takes 0,3% of the memory. I bought a 4 cores and 8gb of RAM laptop to be able to run the model fast, but I don't know how to allocate the use of the memory to concentrate it in developing that task. Is that possible?

Software :: How To Allocate More Than 2GB Memory For An Application On 32 Bit?
Can anyone tell me is there a way to add more than 2GB memory application in a 32 bit server? I found on many threads that it is not possible to set memory limit of a particular application to more than 2GB. I am using Fedora release 8 and trying to add more than 2GB memory to tomcat. If I modify the variable CATALINA_OPTS in /opt/bobcat/bin/ (Startup script of tomcat) and add a value greater than 2GB for memory, tomcat wont start.Is there any work around / Kernel Patches available? Suggestions??

Programming :: Allocate Memory To A Program Before Execution?
I went to an interview last week and there was this guy who asked a simple question that i have been trying to solve for a couple of days. I tried google but i just cant get the search keywords right. The result were just useless. Well, the question is : "How can we allocate a limited memory to a process before we start its execution" well, the question is related to an X11 system so may be some flags must be set to limit its memory.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Rt2860sta.ko - Cannot Allocate Memory
I just switched over to openSUSE about a week ago from Ubuntu and I just purchased an Asus N13 PCI-E wireless network adapter which uses an RALink 2860 chipset. I plugged it in and openSUSE was able to detect it and everything but when I went to go configure it using YaST, it wouldn't be able to scan for networks.

So, I reinstalled my old adapter, downloaded the latest source from RALink and compiled the drivers. When I tried to use insmod on the new .ko that was compiled, I got the "Could not allocate memory" error.

If you need dmsg logs or anything else, I can reinstall the card and get those.

Server :: SFTP Memory Error / Getting An Out Of Memory?
I have been setting up a vps I got out with, with CentOS installed. I've been learning and have set up everying I need with the exception of ftp/sftp.

Using yum I installed vsftpd and ran into problems, thinking it was something I might of done I did a fresh install of CentOS and I still recieve the same problem on a fresh install so it is nothing I have done to the server.

The problem is when connecting via a sftp client I get an out of memory error. This error is listed in the putty faq ( url ) under A.7.5, there is a brief explaintion of the cure under A.7.6.

there is mention of a login script but I don't know where this is located. I'm a novice at Linux but by no means incompotent when it comes to computing.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Allocate And Lock Memory?
On my windows console, i have installed sun virtualbox. I only have 768MB ram and so i downloaded a trial version of eboostr. I thought it would work, but when i tried an install of 11.2, also, i tried a debian install, it did the same thing, it froze up in the middle of the install with the error Code: unable to allocate and lock memory. I guess that eboostr doesn't work, but is there a way to use a flash drive as ram in virtual box?

General :: Ubuntu - Memory Full, Process Memory Usage Doesn't Add Up In Top?
I have a computer with 16GB of ram. At the moment, top shows all the RAM is taken, (NOT by cache), but the RAM used by the various processes is very far from 16GB.I have seen this problem several times, but I don't understand what is happening.My only remedy so far has been to reboot the machine.
