When I try to use the tool "r.resamp.rst", it gives me as answer:

*r.resamp.rst input=map@PERMANENT ew_res=11 ns_res=11 pcurv=curv

I have 14GB left on my hard disk so I don't understand why they are saying me that.

I tried to find solution, and I found some answers (e.g. here : http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/grass-dev/2005-April/018152.html) but I don't understand.

They speak about a "ulimit -f" function, but where should I write it ?

It doesn't work in GRASS. I am on Windows, so maybe that is the problem.

This has been answered in the GRASS Users mailing list:


(I wonder how to deal with the crossposting between project mailing lists and gis stackexchange.com...)

    While it has been discussed, I am not sure that the problem has been resolved in that thread. I would always suggest that you proved at-least a summery of the solution and a link to the thread. Mar 11, 2013 at 10:47
  • The link is there :) The solution appears to be that the user wanted a different functionality...
