You need to raise the respective kernel parameter.  Alternatively, reduce PostgreSQL's consumption of semaphores by reducing its max_connections parameter (currently 13).

Apparently your kernel doesn't have enough semaphores to allow 8.1 and
8.3 to run concurrently.  Follow the advice in the HINT.
