today I compiled gimp-1.1.26 on my Sun SPARC 20 (4 x 125 MHz CPUs, 448 Mb RAM,
Solaris 8), using Perl v5.6.0, gtkxmhtml-0.99.8, gtk+-1.2.8, PDL-2.1.1snap092100,
zlib-1.1.3). I have removed any libraries/headers of older gimp versions, but I get the
following error message during startup.
Gdk-WARNING **: shmat failed!
gimp: shmat() failed: Disabling shared memory tile transport.
All plugins load okay and The Gimp seems to function okay.
I've had this message (or something very similar) on other versions of gimp between
and 1.26. Is this a known bug with Solaris, or have I done something silly ?????
What are the implications of this ?
