I am configuring a dual processor box with 4 gig of memory.  One of the
main applications I will be running is PostgreSQL.  It uses SysV shared
memory for its internal data pages.  If I were to configure a 4.8 kernal
to have 2 gig  of SysV shared memory, will this cause problems.  The
remaining 2 gig of memory is more than sufficient for the rest of the
programs that will be running on the machine.
