Greetings,

I have a multi-threaded application that we run under Mandrake Linux.

In the past when I issues the PS command, each thread was listed as a separate entry in the PS listing.

Now I only get one entry for the application.

Is the a new behavior in Java 1.5, in a new Linux Kernel.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

It's the NPTL, the Native POSIX Thread Library -- a 2.6 kernel feature.

thanks so much.

I figured it was something like that.

However, that still leaves a question in my mind.

We are using a vendor modified mandrake distribution.

When I would originally do a uname -r I got
2.4.21


Now I get:
2.4.25

How does this relate to the 2.6 kernel?

Thanks in advance,

David Kafrissen
