What OS are you using?


Redhat 9 on a dual cpu AMD based 32 bit system

Linux has a hard coded 1.9GB upper limit on shared memory segments. I also have found that BDB itself in a 32 bit linux environment won't let me allocate 2 GBs of cache, disk or otherwise. One of my goals is to track down where BDB is hard coding that in. It definitely does not have that limit under Solaris.
