xanim causes shmget error

I installed XF86.3.1.1 for a while and had no problems. Yesterday I
installed xanim ( When loading a animation file, xanim
causes the following error:

shmget, function not implemented.

What is shmget and what could be the cause of this error. The
.mov is correct and played it on a SUN and it worked OK.

1. SCO Oracle 7.3. - Linux iBCS - JDBC - shmget() error


I'm running SCO Oracle 7.3 on Linux using iBCS.  The database is up,
and the listener for SQL*Net is monitoring Port 1521.

With JDBC from Oracle, using the thin client, I am trying to connect
to the database with the following error:

Loading JDBC driver oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver

ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
ORA-07429: smsgsg: shmget() failed to get segment.
AT&T System V/386 Error: 2: No such file or directory

I guess the last three lines of error messages occur from bottom
to top (i.e. the "No such file.." error is the root cause), and
suspect that since I am running a SCO version under Linux, some
part of my directory structure is missing that is there under SCO.

Anyway, it seems the shmget() fails causing JDBC to not have access
to the database.  Any ideas for a fix to this problem?
