Hi Bruno,


yes it is in the right place, but I assume you are trying to run WSJT-X v2.3.0 or later. The sysctl parameters have changed since v2.3.0. Please use the sysctl.conf file you will find on the relevant WSJT-X installer DMG.

I know this has been discussed earlier but I keep getting this error message even after having followed all the instructions.

This is what I get from the "sysctl -a | grep sysv.shm" command:


Mac-Pro-di-BP:~ bruno$ sysctl -a | grep sysv.shm

kern.sysv.shmmax: 14680064

kern.sysv.shmmin: 1

kern.sysv.shmseg: 32

Everything seems to be ok but I keep getting the same error message while starting Wsjt-x.

Any help will be really appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Hi Bruno,

please double-check you are following the instructions correctly. You can verify you have the sysctl.conf file in the right place by  using these commands from a terminal window:

ls /etc/sysctl.conf
cat /etc/sysctl.conf
