When I use ulimit -s to change the per-process stack size, it only lasts for that login; if I restart the setting is lost. How can I permanently change the maximum stack size on my system?

You need to be clearer about what you have tried and how you verify that it doesn't work. –  phunehehe Oct 17 '12 at 13:10
    
I'm not posting an answer because I'm not sure what your question is, but it seems like limits.conf is what you need. –  phunehehe Oct 17 '12 at 13:10
    
@phunehehe - But when i am changing limits.conf but values are not getting affected by process. so please provide me better solution. –  Javed Mansuri Oct 20 '12 at 5:29
    
After changing limits.conf, you need to get the affected user log out and log in again. A simple reboot will be enough. –  phunehehe Oct 21 '12 at 9:20
