Actually, I'm interested in this also. I have an application I wrote with fpc v1 a few years ago 
(quite a few now) that has run flawlessly as a user under a linux 2.4 kernel since I wrote it. I was 
recently forced to upgrade the machine to a 2.6 kernel due to a hardware failure and as a hack had 
to make my app +s owned by root to get any of the shm stuff to work.

Boot 2.4 and it works, 2.6 gets -EPERM.. I've not had a chance to test it further.

train Americans to stand at the edge of the pool and throw them
