At the command line, run the command uname -r. This will return the
version of the kernel that is in your SuSE distribution. If it is 2.4.1 or
higher, then use the NPTL build of Firebird Superserver; if lower, use the
regular build.

If you want to continue using the regular build of Superserver, then follow
the instructions on p.57 of the release notes.

Note that this situation affects only Superserver, which spawns threads for
each connection process and for some internal processes (garbage collection
and sweeping). Under Classic, the xinetd daemon spawns a separate,
self-contained Firebird server process for each connection.
