Cinelerra setup on latest ver of Sabayon

Post by nordy notlob » Wed Jul 23, 2008 4:24

Please respond in English.

After installing Cinelerra, I received the following ERROR message:

void MWindow::init_shm0: WARNING: /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax is 0x2000000 which is too low.
Before running Cinelerra do the following as root:
echo "0x7ffffff" > /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

Can anyone explain this in a step-by-step manner?

I am not familiar with Linux install procedures or command line entry.

Hoping someone can help,

Nordy

open up a command line, like konsole or gnome terminal.

type su, press enter

type your password, press enter (note - no stars will be displayed)

type or copy in

Code: Select all

echo "0x7ffffff" > /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax
, press enter.

type exit and press enter twice.

That should do it. Most basic steps I can come up with.
