The 2.4.26 Planet CCRMA kernel does not have nptl (the new style
threading library). Glibc should recognize this and switch to the old
threading code automatically. Perhaps something else in the system is
not so smart and is trying to use nptl anyway. You could try the other
kernel (based on the RedHat kernel). It does have nptl but the latency
performance is not so good.
