As far as I know, the GNU/Linux Pthread implementation that is part of Glibc is largely POSIX compliant. I'm not sure the same can be said for the OS/400 pthread implementation.
I found the following webpage highlighting the differences:
I'm not sure what kind of effort would be necessary to port applications using OS/400 pthreads to GNU/Linux pthreads.
Another consideration, the AT might work on Ubuntu, but we haven't added it as a supported target.

Re: OS/400 Pthreads on Ubuntu2012-04-28T14:45:08Z in response to ryanarnThanks Ryan for the information.
I had actually read about the differences and was interested in using the upgrade lock capability of the OS/400 pthread implementation which the GNU/Linux Pthread implementation does not have.
Am not aware of the AT which you did mention. I will be grateful to get pointers so i can check it up.
Thanks so much
