Question where is shared memory in menuconfig??


Hi ,
I know it is silly, but I cannot find the shared memory and message queues options in the menuconfig for the 2.4 kernel. Any ideas under which menu option they are?

ok, rephrasing the question:
when I enter

# ipcs

I get a message saying:

kernel not configured for shared memory
kernel not configured for semaphores
kernel not configured for message queues

How do I configure the 2.4 kernel for shared memory, semaphores and message queues?
I found in one of the forums, that I need to add to /etc/fstab

none /var/shm shm exec,dev,suid,rw 0 0

then create the /var/shm director and mount it, but all this did not work...

General Setup -> System V IPC

This is some kind of file-system that is created in ram. It has nothing to do with ipc.
