i thought this might be a semaphore problem, since i got a similar  
problem in freebsd, where i put
in my /boot/loader.conf and it works. i tried this here also. is it a  
big mistake? the system booted without problems. however, i still get  
the same problem. is there anything else i need to be aware of or that 
i  need to change in order to be able to run initdb?
Better change this in /etc/sysctl.conf.
nope, this part must be set in /boot/loader.conf. shm settings are set 
in sysctl.conf or at runtime.
