problems with shmget
Message ID:
I'm using an AIX system under perl 5.00503 and 5.6 and both versions of perl
give the same results.

My goal is to use IPC::Shareable which will make && make install but, when
`make test`ed nearly every test fails.  Here's the first test which fails:

t/05sv..............IPC::Shareable::SharedMem: shmget: A file or directory
in the path name does not exist.

After reading the module source I discovered the the error came when it used
shmget (IPC/Sharable/, Line 50) so I wrote a one liner to test
this: `perl -e " die $! unless shmget 58194208, 65536, 438"` which yields:

A file or directory in the path name does not exist. at -e line 1.

Can anyone shed light on this for me, please?
