> NPTL on 2.4? this can be done only if you backport the features from 2.6 that were added in order to make NPTL possible ... redhat has done this, but really it's just a waste of time ... 2.4 is dead :P
Could you hint upon the kernel features required for NPTL? May be a link?
> pthreads on 2.6? i really have no idea what you mean by this ... "pthreads" is short for "POSIX threads" and there's no such thing as "pthreads" with respect to a specific code base. NPTL is one implementation of the POSIX threads specification while LinuxThreads is another. -mike
