Oracle parameters installation


I want to install the software client of oracle on unix and one of the prerequiste check is with warning:

Checking security kernel parameters

Checking for BIT_SIZE=64; found BIT_SIZE=64. Passed

Checking for shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=4294967295; found no entry. Failed <<<<

Checking for shmsys:shminfo_shmmni=100; found no entry. Failed <<<<

Checking for semsys:seminfo_semmni=100; found no entry. Failed <<<<

Checking for semsys:seminfo_semmsl=256; found no entry. Failed <<<<

Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<<

Problem: The security parameters in the kernel do not meet the minimum requirements (see above).

Recommendation: Perform operating system specific instructions to update the kernel parameters, namely BIT_SIZE and noexec_user_stack.

What can I do?
