You already have the answer. Of course the solution
has been described on the lists a few times. Open the
file /etc/rc in pico (don't forget to sudo) ( sudo
pico /etc/rc ). scroll down to the system tuning
section and change to look like this.

# System tuning
sysctl -w kern.maxvnodes=$(echo $(sysctl -n
hw.physmem) '33554432 / 512 * 1024 +p'|dc)
sysctl -w kern.sysv.shmmax=16777216
sysctl -w kern.sysv.shmmin=1
sysctl -w kern.sysv.shmmni=32
sysctl -w kern.sysv.shmseg=8
sysctl -w kern.sysv.shmall=65536


These values work well. I don't know if they are
optimal for your system and setup.
