The current platform is not supported by DB2.


The installation quits.


Please assist.

    I have found the problem for this error.

    the installation and building of the db2 instance went with no errors.

    Now I issue a "db2 start dbm" results in the following errors:

    db2 => start dbm
    SQL1220N  The database manager failed to allocate shared memory.

    Could this be a 10.9, Maverick, issue?

    I have another machine running 10.8.6 and V10.1 runs with no problem.
