    Install Posix shared memory

    Using Ubuntu 12.04. I entered
    mount | grep "shm"
    and terminal returned
    none on /run/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
    Does this mean Posix is not enabled or not installed and what should I do?
    I have ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 HyperMemory (integrated). Incidentally this came set at 128MB and probably 512MB would be more suitable - I have 2GB of RAM.

    shm is shared memory a mounted at /run/shm. I have it on my machine.

    Code:
    matthew-Aspire-7540:/home/matthew % mount | grep shm
    none on /run/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
    matthew-Aspire-7540:/home/matthew %
    Code:
    matthew-Aspire-7540:/home/matthew % ls -ld /run/shm 
    drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 160 Sep 20 16:27 /run/shm/
    matthew-Aspire-7540:/home/matthew %
    What do you mean by POSIX not installed ? POSIX is a standard.
