> (Well: Does any ppc-distribution use NPTL ?!) I was under the impression gentoo-ppc uses nptl. I extracted a gentoo-ppc32 2006.1 stage-3 tarball, chroot, and ...: armakuni lib # getconf GNU_LIBPTHREAD_VERSION NPTL 2.4 Havent bothered to check any others. It could be though I was testing on a g5/ppc64 kernel. I'll see about building a mini slackintosh ppc32 w/ nptl and checking the results. Results may come out different on a g5/ppc64 kernel.
