where can i find 'linuxthreads'???


sorry if this question was already asked, i already searched for this but couldn't find it.

where can i download the 'linuxthreads' plugin i need to install glibc 2.3.
most posts say it's already installed and some others say it comes when you download glibc.

thanx
NEF

Hmm... Maybe you need POSIX Threads? If the answer is 'yes', you ahve them in your system (the library libpthread comes with glibc).

What's the problem? Are you trying to compile/write a program using threads?

im installing wine, which needs glibc 2.3 which needs linuxthreads.

the exact output when i run the configure is:

checking installed Linux kernel header files... 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'.

i already saw this on another thread but it didnt answer my question
and yes i think linuxthreads has something to do with POSIX threads, it says so in this site http://pauillac.inria.fr/~xleroy/linuxthreads/

please give me directions on how to install linuxthreads

To see if linuxthreads is installed you can execute libc. Depends on your version, but using the machine I am on now as an example:
Code:
$ /lib/libc.so.6
The output should include a line similar to:

youre right jeremy i do have it, the output is exactly what you wrote

in some other post i read that to be able to install glibc 2.3 i have to put it (linuxthreads) into my glibc directory and configure glibc with --enable-add-ons

how can i put linuxthreads on glibc directory, so i can enable add ons???

Replacing glibc is not a trivial task. If all you are trying to do is install wine from source then you shouln't need glibc2.3 (atleast you never used to). I took a quick look at the README and don't see such a requirement. What problem are you having?

yup, your right, i had already installed wine
(its the kind of situation when you want to fix something but to get that fixed you have to fix something before and so on, and at the end you've forgotten what the initial problem was.)
im actually trying to run kazaa on wine, since i havent been able to install giFT (if you know something about giFT and you want to help me a bit more, then check out this other thread
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=67086)
anyway, here is my problem:

[nef@localhost kazaa]$ wine ./kmd.exe
wine: /lib/i686/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by /usr/lib/libntdll.dll.so)
wine: /lib/i686/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by /usr/lib/libwine_unicode.so.1)

it is that 'libc.so.6'. I havent been able to install some other 2 or 3 programs because of that file that says my glibc is 2.2.5, that's why i wanted to update the glibc in the first place.

well, i found it here with the help of some other thread ftp://ftp.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs-packages/cvs, its an old version, but it does the job.

i thought now i would be able to configure, but now i get another error output
it is exactly the same problem, just as in this thread

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=43380

i think im just one step away from getting this
please help!!!!!!!!
