I wrote a very small program to find out more about pthread's but the program doesn't want to link. I do have the pthread.h header file in the /usr/include directory and compiling works fine, but when gcc starts linking it says : undefinded reference to 'pthread_create'. What's wrong? Which rpm (I'm using RedHat) did I forgot to install this time?

You need to pass gcc the library pthread.  For example:

gcc test.c -o test -lpthread

Hope this helps!!!
