You should mount the file system somewhere to be able to use
POSIX shared memory. Adding the following line to /etc/fstab should
take care of things:
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
Remember to create the directory that you intend to mount tmpfs on
if necessary (/dev/shm is automagically created if you use devfs).
It further directs you to Documentation/filesystems/tmpfs.txt
(All under linux source tree, probably a part of the kernel-docs rpm).
