Hi All,

The CPU Usage of my process goes to 100% when I am trying to use the
pthread_cond_wait() in my threads. The same is not occuring at my
SuSE Linux 9.1. But, I am getting this problem only at Redhat Enterprise 3.2

The Kernel I am using in Redhat is : 2.4.21-15.ELsmp
The compiler Version I am using is : gcc version 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-34)

The SuSE Linux Kernel Version is : 2.6.4-52-default
The compiler version in SuSE Linux is : gcc version 3.3.3 (SuSE Linux)

gdb capture for this application is

Sample program using pthread_cond_wait() is not using CPU Usage.
Note: I measured CPU Usage through top utility.

If anybody overcome this kind of problem, please help me to solve
this problem.

Thank you....
