I asked my sysadmin if he can do the following:
echo 0 > /proc/sys/vm/zone_reclaim_mode
He came back to me saying that he doesn't have the necessary permissions (as root) to create a file in that directory (vm) and that directory doesn't have write permissions set (only has xr) and also that he cannot change the permissions. He tried adding write permission to vm directory but that operation failed.
How can we add write permissions to that directory and create the required file?
Its Ubuntu 9.04
Thank you in advance.
PS: I am posting this here again on the suggestion from my StackOverflow post.
