My shared memory is accessible to everyone, apparently.

I wonder whether your permission bits are incorrect on

Well, in the first place, sincere thanks for your reply (and also
thanks to the others who replied, whose messages I still have to
digest). It seems that while development of dosemu has stopped,
the list is still very much alive.


jws@vega:~$ ls -ld /dev/shm
drwxrwxrwt 3 root root 60 2006-09-19 17:24 /dev/shm

The permissions seem the same.

It's not just the permissions that are important, but whether you
can directly execute files within the temporary filesystem.  Run
'mount' and see if tmpfs is mounted with the 'noexec' option.
If it is, then that's at least one of your problems.
