I'm getting some shmget errors in some logfiles.

I know why, i need to change the size of /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax and shmall.

Unfortunatley, with sysctl missing, it's pointless as the changes can have no effect.

Do i need to recompile the kernel, or is there a different way of doing this ?.

sysctl is part of Procps, available as a dotpup here

Thanks for the link, much appreciated.

Sorry for the delay in replying, been tied up with other stuff.

Sysctl worked great, fixed my shmget problems.

I'd like to compile this and add it to watchdog, would you know if the source obtained from http://procps.sourceforge.net/ or was a different version used ?.


Thanks once again.
