Yep, these are the same error.

I *think* I've been using shared memory for a server I've written (at
least, I use the Perl shared memory calls), so I think shared memory
should work.  Probably your kernel is OK, just X is screwed.  :-(
Check on your X version, etc.

You could check your /usr/src/linux/.config to make sure
CONFIG_SYSV_IPC is enabled, but I can't imagine it isn't.
