Public bug reported:

On ubuntu 8.04 AMD64 the mysql-server-5.0 pkg 
is not accepting a max_connections value higher than 886.

No matter how big your iron is, how much ram you have.

This bug didn't harm most mysql users cause who needs more than 886
simultanous connections.

If i set the variable inside my.cnf to a value higher than 886,
it will be reduced to 886.

Entering mysql it is possibly to set the variable to every value.

mysql>  set global max_connections = '10000';

will work but this get lost with your next reboot.

Older version and even the 32bit version,
don't have that bug.

It's crazy that just the 64bit pkg has this bug.

best regards
