Re: SHMMAX runtime setting for Postgres Installation

        Hello.  Is that right?  I have:

NetBSD 4.0_STABLE NetBSD 4.0_STABLE (X2200_MP) #0: Mon May
 19 08:3 2:25 PDT 2008 

kern.ipc.shmmax = 535019520
kern.ipc.shmmaxpgs = 130620

Which I set with /etc/sysctl.conf at boot time, or with sysctl -w at run
time.  With postgres running on this box, changing these settings seems to
make a difference to Postres.
        NetBSD-3 doesn't seem to have this feature, so I'd say that it
appeared in NetBSD-4.0 and the Postgres documentation is just out of date.

} kern.ipc.shmmax should be adjustable since NetBSD 5.0. It wasn't before.
