In the directory franz/h search for NAMESIZE in the file global.h
and change it; then rebuild the system. (Use a `make clean' first,
because not all the dependencies are in the makefile, I think. You
can rebuild with `make fast' [ha!]).
I changed the NAMESIZE in our system from 3072 to 16384 without difficulty.
However, I have a problem, franz-friends--I tried to increase the list
storage (TTSIZE) from the default 6000 or so 512 byte pages to 32000.
When the storage goes above the 10216 pages or so, I get bizzare behavior,
usually culminating in an illegal instruction. Is 10216 somehow a hard
limit on the list storage size? Has anyone built a system bigger than
10216 and had it work for large jobs? (This is not a problem with our
system datasize limit; it happens before the datasize is exceeded.)
