Doesn't run "out of the box" on Mac OS X (System.IO.IOException: Too many open files) #2118
I made a site using the Yeoman generator (as per http://blogs.msdn.com/b/webdev/archive/2014/08/12/develop-asp-net-vnext-applications-on-a-mac.aspx), selected "Web Application" in the generator (which includes all the default sample pages), and tried running it unmodified:
This resulted in a "Too many open files" exception:
I tried increasing the limit but I'm still getting the same exception. Are there other settings I need to set? Is this documented somewhere yet?
Ah I see, that explains a bug I encountered around a year ago: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19071
