Despite its name, this is a science or project application error.

boinc_graphics_make_shmem() (called from the main science application) creates a shared memory segment of a predefined size. When this shared memory segment cannot be made, e.g. due to out-of-memory problems, the application will fail to start up and fail the task.

boinc_graphics_make_shmem failed: 2 means literally:
ENOENT No such file or directory. A component of a specified path name did not exist, or the path name was an empty string.

For Macintosh users, see Can’t_create_shared_memory:_system_shmget_(Macintosh) on how to increase your shared memory segment.
