Which is the minimum version of the linux-kernel implementing the system call nanosleep? (sys_nanosleep)


1 Answer 1


It was added in the late 1990s (in ncurses since February 1998). Mailing list comments by David Dawes a year earlier said at that point it was only available in Solaris.

According to Linux IO mini HOWTO (December 1997), it was available in the 2.0.x kernels, and was added after the previous version of the HOWTO on March 30, 1997. I found a French translation of the manual page dated April 1997.

From that, it seems it was added in April 1997, which would be 2.0.30 (see Linux Kernel Version History: 2.0 series kernels ).
