there was an important linux emulation change, which might fix
crashes of linux applications using threads with SuSE 9.1 libraries.
If you had issues before, please try with up-to-date kernel and report
success/failure. I confirmed Linux Mozilla working now reliably,
and would be interested e.g. if the Linux JVM works.
The kernel with the fix is identified as:
> ident netbsd | egrep -e 'linux_misc.c' -e 'linux_exec.c'
$NetBSD: linux_exec.c,v 1.71 2004/08/08 09:40:50 jdolecek Exp $
$NetBSD: linux_misc.c,v 1.127 2004/08/08 09:40:50 jdolecek Exp $
The change will eventually be pulled up to 2.0 release later.
