    Max Kernel.SHMMAX in SUSE10(32Bit) ?
    Hi All B) , I am working on SUSE10(32 bit). I am trying to increase my kernel.shmmax. Max i am able to set is only 4GB. Even I set more than 4GB the system doesnt accept it !!! Is the maximum SHMMAX we can set is 4GB ? or Do we have any other way to set ? I tried the follwing steps. vi /etc/sysctl.conf kernel.shmmax=8589934591( Edited to 8 GB ) /sbin/sysctl -p ( to reflect the changes in SHMMAX) cat /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax 4294967295 ( still it shows 4GB ) :( can any one support me on this ? Thanks in Advance Arun
