Hello 

I'm still a little bit confused where I should locate this query.
I hope this newsgroup fits.

The problem I run into is that we program some interprocess SW which
passes messages in between some processes and the processes use a
shared memory too. Since Linux hasn't a tool like 'ipcs' or 'iprm' 
the only way to get rid of unusable queues and shared memory 
is a reboot! :-\

Does anybody know how I can handle this problem in a more accurate way?
Or is there somewhere a free bundle of 'ipc' tools?

You need to get the ipcdelta.tgz file from tsx-11.mit.edu in
/pub/linux/patches, I think.  I once suggested to Rik Faith he
include ipcs and ipcrm in his Linux utility packages, but
since he hasn't made a new release since then...
