Hi everybody,

  The last two weeks i was bussy with gcc 3.4.1 and glibc 2.3.3. As i was 
unable to compile linuxthreads at a moment so i have tried a new way. I have 
enabled the nptl (Native POSIX Threads Library) support for glibc and i have 
rebuilded all the stuff on the system. 

  The process was not easy. I had a borked gcc for some time, some compile 
problems with a few of the moonbase modules and other related problems. I do 
not recommed for production systems this stuff. It's for testing purposes 
only. However my system is stabilized now and it works fine and fast. I even 
use the udev all the time.

  The only big problem i have now it's the SDL stuff (related games don't 
work :( ). I have tried the LFS patch, and SDL compiles fine now but many 
related apps crash with a segmentation fault error. 

  For the curious ppl i insert here the stuff i have finded, installed and 
tested do far.
