    I still think this is probably because your trying to use more sysV
    memory that then kernel will allow.

    You either have to up this value by patching the kernel in the case
    of 2.0.x) or by increasing /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax. In the laters
    2.2.x-ac kernels you can certainly do this:

    echo "64 1024 2 ^ * p" | dc > /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

    to set the maximum amount of shared memory to 64MB.

    ok... I didn't read this at forst. What does

    cat /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

    say?
