    VESA(0): shmget(lowmem) error: Function not implemented


    So I've stripped my kernel, very very aggressively, but the wonderful thing is, everything except X still works. Unfortunately, I've played around with options multiple times and haven't been able to find the culprit behind my problem.
    Code:
    VESA(0): shmget(lowmem) error: Function not implemented
    I get that every time I try to start x. Any ideas?

    For anyone who cares, I found the culprit. I had disabled System V IPC which apparently contains the information for shmget(). Re enabling it got X working!
