I have RedHat 5.2 with glibc-2.0.7-29 and kernel 2.2.3 (SMP) and MySQL

I have raised max_connections to 400 but when mysql gets to about 250
runing threads I get an error 

error: 'Can't create a new thread (errno 12). If you are not out of
available memory, you can consult the manual for a possible OS-dependent

I recompiled MySQL on RH 5.2 with glibc-2.0.7-29. In the past I had
similiar errors but they went away when I upgraded glibc. (to 2.0.7-19
rpm). This error shows only on this box. There are other linux machines
with mysql but they are not so much loaded.

Is there any linux/glibc/thread limit that I can't get over 255
running threads ? (I'm running oracle database on the same box so may be
it is an issue)

UNIX is user friendly. It's just selective about who its friends are.
