In that case there must already exist patches to fix this because Fedora uses both in Rawhide.

IIRC Fedora uses a duel-thread setup like you get with +nptl -nptlonly. It's been a while since i checked though.

Yes, they still have the old linuxthread library too, but Xen is AFAIK build against nptl (which is the default on Rawhide since begin of April).
To be build against the old linuxthread lib it would need -I/usr/include/linuxthreads -L/usr/lib{,64}/linuxthreads and a build dependency on linuxthreads-devel, neither of those is in xen's spec, thus I suppose it uses the default threading lib which is nptl on rawhide. But I could be wrong, I have no Fedora machine to check this.

I don't run Xen (never have and currently can't since I need the playground machine for a different project), but if someone's testing this, don't forget to play with LD_ASSUME_KERNEL, which is the way to force runtime linking against LinuxThreads, a la
Code:
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL="2.4.1" /path/to/app

When your cons outweigh your pros.. go back to what you know.

Seriously.. if you just can't get gentoo to work for you.. then use something that does.

Comparing gentoo to WindowsXP is stupid. Compare WindowsXP to other desktop minded, user friendly distros, like SuSe.

On my first install there were things that didnt work correctly (Not as bad as yours though). Some things I was able to fix, others never repaired. I reinstalled Gentoo a few months ago, and I have a perfect system. I'm feeling so good about it. Maybe you should try another install, and you'll be able to make better choices, and hopefully everything will work out.

This is by far the worst support post I have ever read, you just state that 'some application crashes', 'some application won't magnify 400%', this doesn't make it easy for us to help you.
