Could you also write the answers you saw in the other two books? That would be nice to refer here and correct which ever is wrong or explain both. 😀

Its not that simple....



Kernel-supported threads fall into two classes.
  • In a "pure" kernel-supported system, the kernel is responsible for scheduling all threads.
  • Systems in which the kernel cooperates with a user-level library to do scheduling are known as two-level, or hybrid, systems. Typically, the kernel schedules LWPs, and the user-level library schedules threads onto LWPs.
This is why i was confused....
thanks anyways!! c ya!!
