Description Faisal Malallah 2003-12-01 09:35:34 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5)
Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

Description of problem:
If I use a kernel that I compile other than the one shipped with
Fedora, e.g. 2.4.23-vanilla, KDE will not start and give this error:

cannot set up thread-local storage: kernel too old for thread-local 
storage support

I was able to start Gnome though. Is this related to nptl ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. compile a vanilla kernel
2. start Fedora with the vanilla kernel
3. startx
