I have a multithreaded "c" program that seems to work perfect on some servers and gives me this error on other servers.
pthread_create:: Cannot allocate memory

I am running this from the command prompt on a linux Red Hat 9.0 server.
How can I solve this problem?

Have a look at /etc/security/limits.conf on the servers it wont run on and check "U", which is the max number of threads a user can open. Man limits.conf will give you more info.

I got it working now. I had to recompile glibc with 1024 threads.
