glibc 2.3 with linuxthreads...

I am having trouble installing glibc 2.3 with linuxthreads. I downloaded linuxthreads and put it into the glibc2.3 folder. but when trying to --enable-add-ons for ./configure glibc does not find linuxthreads. They highly recommend that glibc2.3 be compiled with linuxthreads so I DO NOT want to compile without it using --disable-sanity-checks. Please let me know how I can get glibc to compile with linuxthreads. Below is a copy of the console output... Thanks guys ;-)

running configure fragment for ./sysdeps/i386/elf
running configure fragment for ./sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux
checking installed Linux kernel header files... (cached) 2.0.10 or later
*** On GNU/Linux systems it is normal to compile GNU libc with the
*** `linuxthreads' add-on. Without that, the library will be
*** incompatible with normal GNU/Linux systems.
*** If you really mean to not use this add-on, run configure again
*** using the extra parameter `--disable-sanity-checks'.

did you unpack it inside of glibc? i mean, is it still tar'd or compressed? You might also need a patch for it to work too (that's what I had to do for LFS. here's the doc page on that:

and you can find the patch here:

I hope that helps. Good Luck

I uncompressed the contents of glibc-2.3-linuxthreads to within the glibc-2.3 folder which was automatically named "linuxthreads". About applying the patch. I am not sure that this will work on glibc 2.3 and I did not see a patch for the newest version ont he site you listed. Is there any other way to get this to install? Because the newest version of libdvdread requires glibc 2.3 and I cannot install libdvdread without --force. I would rather not do this as I cannot see the problems that may lie ahead for the application. Thanks guys...
