Subject Shared Memory Problem (fwd)
Date Mon, 03 Dec 2001 09:06:11 GMT
fyi:  in 1.3.x this used to give an informative error on linux telling the
user to recompile their kernel for sysv ipc support.

(i'm assuming ap_mm_create is a 2.0 symbol name...?)

Subject: Shared Memory Problem


A simple question, I believe ...

I built my own 2.4.15-pre7 kernel today and have a problem - I can't start
httpd.  Whenever I try I get the following messages:

Nov 20 18:53:35 walnut httpd: Ouch! ap_mm_create(1048576,
"/var/apache-mm/mm.1529") failed
Nov 20 18:53:35 walnut httpd: Error: MM: mm:core: failed to acquire shared
memory segment (Function not implemented): OS: No such file or directory

Which kernel CONFIG symbol I have set wrong?



P.S. I do have CONFIG_TMPFS=y and the df command shows:

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda6              4111268   1564388   2338040  41% /
