Hi,

I have to find out if my glibc version is thread safe or not. How do I do that?

ldd --version
ldd (GNU libc) 2.5

But it doesn't tell me if it's thread safe or not. I have to install a PHP debugger from Nusphere which states:

If you are trying to find your glibc version you can do this:
For Redhat family:
rpm -qa | grep glibc

@farzanj, that's great. Thank you! But how do I know if that glibc is non thread safe or thread safe?

I think it's non thread safe.

Here's GNU discussion of thread-safety.

Can you be more specific?

I use Nusphere PHP IDE (http://nusphere.com). For remote debugging they have their own debug-php.so module for remote debugging. Download the readme.txt file from my initial post thread. I think it's the non-thread that I have to install.

Just wondering what the linux command is for finding out if the glibc is the thread safe or no thread safe.

There is no such command.  I have forwarded you the link that would contain this information.  These general characteristics cannot be found using a command.
