[chris@debian.org: Re: db3]

Hello libc6 maintainers

I am the maintainer of mysql which finally has support for transactions
- when using db3 - which sadly brought me a coulple of bug reports.

May I ask you to prepare a compatible glibc upload as fast as
reasonable? I don't know exactly what's the thing with the threads and
who's fault it is but you can check my mysql diffs and modify the rules
file to use db3 support and see (on an alpha platform) what will happen.

Good luck with getting db3 working on non-i386 before the new glibc is
uploaded.  I've been wrestling with it for awhile (the new mysql packages
are using it...or trying to) on Alpha and have seen similar problems on
sparc and PPC.  Seems that glibc 2.1.3's libpthread doesn't supply the
functions needed for db3 to be able to support thread mutexes (at least
not on non-i386).  The new glibc does solve this on Alpha, though (I
checked), but until it's uploaded, I doubt a db3-using binary would do
much good on other archs if it's intended to be a threaded app.
