Hi Experts,

I received an error message while updating my database in Fedora 14. The message says

An error occurred in Avast! Engine: Invalid argument.

What kind of error is it?

Can I get the problem solved by Avast?

Hallo Joby,

To resolve that issue, you will need to do the following:

  • You will need to go to the Terminal and then type: sudo gedit /etc/sysctl.conf
  • That should open up sysctl.conf as the root, and after that  you will make and then save changes to the file sysctl.conf.
  • Once the file sysctl.conf is open, you will need to add the following line to it at the end: kernel.shmmax = 128000000
  • Reboot your computer after that.

Regards,

Carl
