Memory Fault

I’m collecting errors on a new platform! This is from Mac OS X 10.3. I’ve gotten the debugger up and am far enough to see that the error happens when the program tries to create a big (512k) chunk of shared memory. Smaller chunks work.

In 10.2 I had upped the shared memory from 4MB to 256MB in /System/Library/StartupItems/SystemTuning/SystemTuning, but that no longer works.

  1. Caused by a program trying to access shared memory that failed to be created. Dereference an error code (-1) like a pointer, and voila! Memory Fault.
