+<p>The kernels that RedHat provides have this support built in, but if you

+Function not implemented
+This can be fixed in one of several ways:
+<li>Rebuild db4 for the kernel you're using.</li>
+<li>Use a RedHat 9 kernel.</li>
+<li>Apply the NPTL patches to the kernel you're using.</li>
+<li>Use a recent (2.5.x) kernel with the NPTL support included.</li>
