 # This script has been rewritten in using

-# even though it isn't fully used, the config check does require a valid
-# shared memory setup AT THE DEFAULT LOCATION. If you're running on a
-# laptop, that may not exist. Fail early.
-# OSX note: it "works" (for test-masters purposes) to just create the
-#           directory, even though that isn't how shared memory is
-#           handled on OSX. The directories must be owned by the id
-#           running the tests.
