The "correct" way to "fix" this problem is to compile glibc using the
nptl flag, i.e.


and then use the 2.6.* kernels in Gentoo.

Maybe put this in the FAQ or something, Paolo?


I am using Mandrake Linux 9.2. I hd had a look at the configure options 
and I cannot find a USE="nptl", how do I go about fixing this problem?

Usage: ./configure [OPTION]... [VAR=VALUE]...

To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS...), specify them as
VAR=VALUE.  See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.

Defaults for the options are specified in brackets.

   -h, --help              display this help and exit
       --help=short        display options specific to this package
       --help=recursive    display the short help of all the included 
   -V, --version           display version information and exit
   -q, --quiet, --silent   do not print `checking...' messages
       --cache-file=FILE   cache test results in FILE [disabled]
   -C, --config-cache      alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'
   -n, --no-create         do not create output files
       --srcdir=DIR        find the sources in DIR [configure dir or `..']

Installation directories:
   --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
   --exec-prefix=EPREFIX   install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX

By default, `make install' will install all the files in
`/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/lib' etc.  You can specify
an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' using `--prefix',
for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.

For better control, use the options below.

Fine tuning of the installation directories:
   --bindir=DIR           user executables [EPREFIX/bin]
   --sbindir=DIR          system admin executables [EPREFIX/sbin]
   --libexecdir=DIR       program executables [EPREFIX/libexec]
   --datadir=DIR          read-only architecture-independent data 
   --sysconfdir=DIR       read-only single-machine data [PREFIX/etc]
   --sharedstatedir=DIR   modifiable architecture-independent data 
   --localstatedir=DIR    modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]
   --libdir=DIR           object code libraries [EPREFIX/lib]
   --includedir=DIR       C header files [PREFIX/include]
   --oldincludedir=DIR    C header files for non-gcc [/usr/include]
   --infodir=DIR          info documentation [PREFIX/info]
   --mandir=DIR           man documentation [PREFIX/man]

System types:
   --build=BUILD     configure for building on BUILD [guessed]
   --host=HOST       cross-compile to build programs to run on HOST [BUILD]

Optional Features:
   --disable-FEATURE       do not include FEATURE (same as 
   --enable-FEATURE[=ARG]  include FEATURE [ARG=yes]
   --disable-sanity-checks really do not use threads (should not be used 
                           in special situations) [default=yes]
   --enable-shared         build shared library [default=yes if GNU ld &
   --enable-profile        build profiled library [default=yes]
   --enable-omitfp         build undebuggable optimized library
   --enable-bounded        build with runtime bounds checking
   --disable-versioning    do not include versioning information in the 
                           objects [default=yes if supported]
   --enable-oldest-abi=ABI configure the oldest ABI supported [e.g. 2.2]
                           [default=glibc default]
                           configure and build add-ons in DIR1,DIR2,... 
                           for add-ons if no parameter given
   --disable-hidden-plt    do not hide internal function calls to avoid PLT
   --enable-static-nss     build static NSS modules [default=no]
   --disable-force-install don't force installation of files from this 
                           even if they are older than the installed files
   --enable-kernel=VERSION compile for compatibility with kernel not 
older than
   --enable-all-warnings   enable all useful warnings gcc can issue

Optional Packages:
   --with-PACKAGE[=ARG]    use PACKAGE [ARG=yes]
   --without-PACKAGE       do not use PACKAGE (same as --with-PACKAGE=no)
   --with-gmp=DIRECTORY    find GMP source code in DIRECTORY (not needed)
   --with-gd=DIR           find libgd include dir and library with 
prefix DIR
   --with-gd-include=DIR   find libgd include files in DIR
   --with-gd-lib=DIR       find libgd library files in DIR
   --with-fp               if using floating-point hardware [default=yes]
   --with-binutils=PATH    specify location of binutils (as and ld)
   --with-elf              if using the ELF object format
   --with-xcoff            if using the XCOFF object format
   --without-cvs           if CVS should not be used
   --with-headers=PATH     location of system headers to use (for example
                           /usr/src/linux/include) [default=compiler
   --with-tls              enable support for TLS
   --without-__thread      do not use TLS features even when supporting them

Some influential environment variables:
   CC          C compiler command
   CFLAGS      C compiler flags
   LDFLAGS     linker flags, e.g. -L<lib dir> if you have libraries in a
               nonstandard directory <lib dir>
   CPPFLAGS    C/C++ preprocessor flags, e.g. -I<include dir> if you have
               headers in a nonstandard directory <include dir>
   CPP         C preprocessor

Use these variables to override the choices made by `configure' or to help
it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.
