Warning
LinuxThreads is now obsolete and is being replaced by NPTL. The initial author of LinuxThreads (Xavier Leroy) stopped working on LinuxThreads a long time ago. The glibc development team, in particular Ulrich Drepper, continued working on LinuxThreads for a while, but are now developing NPLT instead.


However, this site has loads of useful links, as well as glibc info!

That's the 'pthread' library which used to be part of glibc, but support was mostly dropped for glibc-2.4. Apparently there was still a need for them, so they were updated a couple of times -up til glibc-2.9 IIRC. The lack of ptherad support is the reason commonly given for newer glibc versions not supporting linux kernel 2.4.x anymore. But, if the pthreads lib is present and glibc is compiled to support a minimum linux version of 2.4.x, then programs which use pthreads(not NPTL) should be able to run -whether under linux-2.6.x or linux-2.4.x. Confused now?
