sysctl command

I run a web-server and I would like to log packets with un-routable source addresses on Linux operating system. How can I log spoofed packets on Debian / Ubuntu / CentOS / RHEL / Linux based server? How can I log a Martian packet (packet from Mars) on Linux operating systems?

I am trying to set exec-shield protection on Linux as described here but getting the following error on Ubuntu Linux server version 12.04 LTS:

sysctl -w kernel.exec-shield=1
error: “kernel.exec-shield” is an unknown key

How do I fix this problem and make sure exec-shield buffer overflow protection security feature turned on Ubuntu Linux?

I‘m trying to use Cinelerra video editing and compositing software under Linux operating systems. However, I’m getting the following error:

MWindow::init_shm: /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax is 0×1000000.
It should be at least 0x7ffffff for cinelerra.

How do I fix this problem?

I setup a CentOS Linux based Linux server running as a gateway and firewall server. However, I’m getting the following messages in the /var/log/messages log file:

Dec 20 00:41:01 fw01 kernel: Neighbour table overflow.
Dec 20 00:41:01 fw01 last message repeated 20 times

OR


Dec 20 00:41:01 fw03 kernel: [ 8987.821184] Neighbour table overflow.
Dec 20 00:41:01 fw03 kernel: [ 8987.860465] printk: 100 messages suppressed.

Why does kernel throw “Neighbour table overflow” messages in syslog? How do I fix this problem under Debian / CentOS / RHEL / Fedora / Ubuntu Linux?
