man sysctl.conf
man 8 sysctl

Add ‘vm.max_map_count=100000’ to /etc/sysctl.d/10-custom.conf

thanks that worked i appreciate the help ^^

And to enlighten yourself, please try to understand what you are doing when you edit in a “file” in /proc. You then change something inside data structure of the present running kernel. Of course that is lost at shutdown and not there on the next boot. It is not a configuration file.

Try to read on /proc and /sys.


thanks for that where would we all be without you ^^ good job :ok_hand:
