My experience with OSX is that the kern.sysv.shmmax sysctl is set very
low and needs to be increased. You can put it in /etc/sysctl.conf
(which I don't think exists by default but I could be wrong on that).
I also found that using sysctl -w doesn't work - I needed to put the
entry into /etc/sysctl.conf and reboot.
