I have been using RHEL4 x86_64. I wanted to clear the cache by executing echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches which is missing in the vm folder. Is there anyway I can restore it back using some kind of rpm ?
Any comment would be of much help.
Thanks in advance
No, it's part of the kernel access, so it's not installable or deletable. The standard rhel4 kernels all support it, or at least all the ones I have used, so it really should be there. What kernel version are you running? Can you show us the contents of vm?
