while troubleshooting I eventually did the same

Yeah, fixed that. I'm still not sure what exactly happened with that file 
but I corrected it.

I'll look into that. Can I switch that on without the need to start from 
scratch with empty ovdb files ?

I switched those on just to be sure not to miss any functionality 
regarding my issue. The shmem error is related to the sysV system, I 
wasn't aware of that yesterday. So I struggled around the system looking 
for clues and switching on things in the hope that would help heh.

Well, Julien's suggestion about SystemV shared memory made me to alter 
security.jail.sysvipc_allowed to 1. That proved to be succesfull and 
accordingly I mailed him (offlist, by accident).

I'm not aware of systemV changes in 8.0 as well. I plan to migrate the 
first box over to 8.0 next month. 

After verifying all was well (well, some minor cmsg and nocem issues are 
left now, seems the syntax of config files has been changed and I naively 
copied over just the old pre 2.5.x files), I tried inn-STABLE-20091128. 
That went okay, no issues or bad_command's to report; although 2 feeds, 
both <32k, !binary, not a very demanding environment.

Thank you for your reply.

Kind regards,
