Fix a PostgreSQL and Apple Remote Desktop conflict
Authored by: silverdr on Dec 03, '06 09:05:06AM
Well, I definitely have a conflict between ARD and PostgreSQL (7.4.11). My Postgres installation does not start upon boot but when I have ARD activated in the sharing preferences, Postgres refuses to start and says:

FATAL: could not create shared memory segment: Cannot allocate memory
DETAIL: Failed system call was shmget(key=5432001, size=3809280, 03600).
HINT: This error usually means that PostgreSQL's request for a shared memory segment exceeded available memory or swap space. To reduce the request size (currently 3809280 bytes), reduce PostgreSQL's shared_buffers parameter (currently 300) and/or its max_connections parameter (currently 50).
The PostgreSQL documentation contains more information about shared memory configuration.


When I turn ARD off, start postgres and then turn ARD back on - seems to work fine.
