'Can't Mount /dev/shm...


ATI recommends enabling POSIX Shared Memory to get 3D accel. in Wine, and they tell you to write in /dev/shm for /etc/fstab with the following:

tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0

and then mounting /dev/shm.

I did the first parrt, but when trying to mount I get the following error:
Code:
# mount /dev/shm
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on tmpfs,
       missing codepage or other error
Any ideas? Thanks ahead!

Cheers,
Galen

first make sure your kernel supports tmpfs
cat /proc/filesystems
