Dear all,

I'm desperately trying to install something which is complaining about
increasing the Kernel parameter MSGMNI from 0 to at least 50.

In /etc/system I have set msgsys:msginfo_msgmni=200 and restarted server.
The application (and sysdef) still tells me it is 0.

Solaris 7
Machine is a Sparc Notebook - Tadpole UltrabookIIi

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
