Greetings...

Any comments on running Java w/in UML? And the threading support?

I'm running debian (sarge) w/ the UML patches against 2.4.26 kernel.  SKAs support is on the host system.

Works OK, with the following things to note:
 - Threads..
     There's a thread-limit utility out there which runs until it cannot create any more threads on the system (based on http://www.volano.com/linuxnotes.html)

     On the host system,  this utility hits about 1500 threads (which is acceptable)
     On the uml system, this utility hits about 900 threads, and the response is significantly slow
    
 - Java..
      Trying to run a java app (resin from www.caucho.com) within the uml, fails with a segfault (the uml dies and a seg fault message is listed on the host box). It's Sun J2SDK v1.4.2 (04)

There have been occassions where the uml 'seems' to pause (while executing the thread-limit for example).

If you guys could point me in the right direction... maybe there's a patch I'm missing or a library i need to update...

TIA,
