Re: Another question

Check the Readme's with the Kernel source - there is actualy a device you
have to mount in your fstab file (you know, for bootup;) that enables
shared memory.  It uses a "imaginary" mount point like /proc does.

However, as far as I know, "free" and friends don't show the shared memory
in use correctly (though df showes the mount point...)

Sorry I can't remember the exact command, if you can't find it - please
let me know and I will dig it up from a server I have it setup on.
