NPTL support in 2.4 kernel series?
I am maintaining the packages of the MaxDB database system.
Recently upstream has converted the database kernel from
linuxthread-style threading to NPTL. While -at least for i386-
linuxthreads is still supported in MaxDB at this time, it will go away
in one of the next releases.
As far as I know there is no NPTL support in 2.4 debian kernels (as for
example in some RedHat 2.4 kernels). Is that correct?
In that case I will have to add a dependency on kernel-image-2.6 or does
anyone know of a better way to express a dependency on NPTL style threading?
Thanks for your help,
