It depends - some parameters can be changed in /etc/sysctl.conf - if you
change them there, no need for a recompile. Also, for kernel modules, you
can change their settings in /etc/modules.conf with "options" lines.
However, if it's a header file or some such that you are changing - yes,
you'll need to recompile the kernel, install and reboot. I don't honestly
remember where the shmmax settings are best set from.
