Thanks Alexandre.

I should have said I have FB SS installed on SuSE 9.1

NTPL means Native Posix Thread Library. What does Native Posix Thread
Library mean in the context of LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5?

As it happens I have researched this until my brain hurts. I have a
different problem which I believe has nothing to do with Firebird and
for which I have been advised to remove LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 from my
environment vars. My question is related to the potential consequences
to my Firebird installation if I do that.
