Bug fixes

Module kernelconf: 32 bit unsigned settings

The module was improperly handling these large number so it was impossible to configure say the shmmax parameter above 2Gigs.

Version 1.30r2


Module kernelconf: semaphores

The module has been enhanced to control the 4 parameters limiting the system V IPC semaphores. They are notably used by Apache. You may have to configure that if you are running several copies of Apache for example. Virtual private server users may reach the default limit of the kernel.
