sysctl: 'vm.legacy_va_layout' is an unknown key
I need to set this kernel parameter in order for my cedega 4.1.1 to work without unhandled exceptions,but /proc/sys/vm/ does not contain a legacy_va_layout file therefore the sysctl -p command produces this error.
I have a 2.4.21 and a 2.6.9(-cko2) kernel and neither of these has that option. I can't find this parameter in the kernel-prameters.txt but it shoud be available as others using my kernelversion have done this.
I've searched the net and found a patch for 22.214.171.124-rc2 that is supposed to patch the kernel with this option yet this seems to be deprecated and not matching my kernel version anyway.
Is there a patch available for 2.6.9 or is there any other way i can enable this option ?
Thanks in advance

add the line
vm.legacy_va_layout = 1
exit and save with :w
sysctl -p |grep error
if it returns someting it should be something like:
error: 'vm.legacy_va_layout' is an unknown key
if it returns nothing then you're all set AFAIK.
