will there ever be a permanent fix in WSJT-x?
the problem lies with Apple, we do not know why the mechanism
using /etc/sysctl.conf to adjust kernel parameters does not work
on macOS 11 using M1 hardware. At some point in the future the
requirement for shared memory to communicate between the WSJT-X
processes will be removed, but that is a big change that we do not
intend to do quickly.
Surely you can arrange for a script to be run on reboot to adjust
the shared memory parameters, also why are you rebooting your M1
Mac so often that this becomes so annoying?
here's an example of how to use LaunchDaemon to run a on-time
command after reboot with root access.
