Looking closer, the reason those are the only reported values is that those are the only possible results from initdb's choose_dsm_implementation(). So the real question here is whether "mmap" should be considered to dominate "sysv" if it's available. If so, why isn't choose_dsm_implementation() trying it; and if not, why are we carrying it? regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
