Shared memory - 2.4.x

Hi there,

running "top" on a 2.2.18 Kernel showed me the ammount of memory shared.

Now under 2.4.x "top" always displays "0" and i have mountet the tmpfs (if it's needed for that ?).

Is shared memory gone? Is my "top" to old?! I think i've installed all needed versions
as described in "Changes" under linux/Documentation

I don't think there isn't any shared memory, but i'm confused :)

Thanx a lot,
