i was running UML version 188.8.131.52 on Fedora Core 3
host and things were working fine .
Then i used the same UML version on Fedora Core 4 and
it segfaulted . a search on the web indicated that
this was likely due to NPTL usage in the new glibc
included in gcc ver 4 that comes with FC4.
Phill Wombat's email on
and article at
suggested ways and workarounds for it , including
tweaking files on the UML filesystem image manually
However when i got hold of latest stable 184.108.40.206
kernel from kernel.org and built UML from it , it
boots fine on Fedora Core 4 as well, even though using
the exact same UML filesystem image with which old UML
kernel was giving problems.
what confuses me now is that according to the
explanation given by Phil in the email , tihs
arrangement should not have worked , since according
to Jeff Dike , NPTL changes have not yet made it into
the mainstream kernel tree .
i am totally at a loss to understand what was causing
this problem to begin with , and how is it rectified
when using UML version 220.127.116.11 even though no glibc
stuff has been changed in the UML filesystem image.
thanks in advance for any insights.
