You can confirm whether the settings are actually taking like this:
Welcome to psql 8.2.4, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.
postgres=# show shared_buffers;
Since your shared_buffers setting should probably be in the hundreds of
megabytes range if you want good performance, you may need to update your
kernel settings anyway, but the above will let you see what the server is
actually starting with.
