Linux command: get glibc Thread Safe or Non-Thread Safe version

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:

Sorry the layout looks messy and hard to read so I'm just uploading the text file and snapshot.

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.

http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/libstdc++/manual/using_concurrency.html

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.
