Hello Experts,

I just tried to install Oracle 11g (2 attempt). The install failed because these parameters were missing or not set (I am not sure)
semopm=100; semopm=32
ip_local_port_range=1024 - 65000; ip_local_port_rage=32768 - 6100
rnem_default=4194304; rnem_default=126976
rnem_max=4194304; rnem_max=131071
wnem_default=262144; wnem_default=126976
wnem_max=262144; wnem_max=131071

how do I change/set these parameters?

thx,

regards,
