Increasing memory buffer sizes (Postgresql->Administration)
If you try upping your shared_buffers in your postgresql.conf, and get an error similar to this:
IpcMemoryCreate: shmget(key=5432001, size=266371072, 03600) failed: 
Invalid argument
This error usually means that PostgreSQL's request for a shared memory
segment exceeded your kernel's SHMMAX parameter. 
You should increase your the shmmax parameters using tips in the Unix administration quickies.
