Description Hrunting Johnson 2002-11-21 15:15:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 
1.0.3705)

Description of problem:
On newer 2.4.18 kernels, MemShared in /proc/meminfo is always reported as zero 
(0).  Is there a reason shared memory isn't reported?  This may not be a bug, 
but a legitimate feature.  Under 2.4.[79] kernels, this value was typically 
small, but never zero.  It always seemed to low under those kernels as well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cat /proc/meminfo
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  MemShared:           0 kB

Expected Results:  MemShared:          52 kB
