Default Failed to obtain a shared memory identifier

I finally got it to where my Nvidia loads - but the Xserver still bombs after it tries to start up - it flashes the Nvidia screen about 3 times and then freezes in the /var/dt/Xerrors the only error is this -

NVIDIA(0):Failed to obtain a shared memory identifier

Anybody know what this means ?
Ok so I found out why this is - the kernel patches must have changed the CONFIG_SYSVIPC to no - does anyone know how to fix this ?
