Description Karel Klíč 2011-08-08 15:18:54 UTC
A problem related to debuginfo was found in the cpufrequtils-007-5.el6 package. This issue might affect crash analysis done by Automatic Bug Reporting Tool and its retrace server, and also prevent proper debugging of crashes via GDB.

Debuginfo files for some binaries are not present in the debuginfo package. This might be caused by:
 - binary being compiled without debugging information
 - debugging information being removed from the binary by a build script
 - rpmbuild failing to extract debugging information from a binary in a buildroot because of permissions (eg. suid binaries, binaries without executable flag set)

List of binaries without corresponding debuginfo file:
- affected binary: /usr/bin/cpufreq-set
  affected package: cpufrequtils-007-5.el6.i686
  binary doesn't contain debug sections (it was probably stripped)
  affected binary file mode: 100755
- affected binary: /usr/bin/cpufreq-aperf
  affected package: cpufrequtils-007-5.el6.i686
  binary doesn't contain debug sections (it was probably stripped)
  affected binary file mode: 100755
- affected binary: /usr/bin/cpufreq-info
  affected package: cpufrequtils-007-5.el6.i686
  binary doesn't contain debug sections (it was probably stripped)
  affected binary file mode: 100755

This issue can be investigated by using eu-readelf tool from the elfutils package. Use `eu-readelf --notes /path/to/binary` to get build ID of a binary. Then check that the debuginfo package does not contain /usr/lib/debug/.build-id/<aa>/<bbbbbbbb>, where <aa> are the first two chars of the build ID, and <bbbbbbbb> is the rest of it. It should be a symlink pointing back to the binary.

(This bug was detected and filed by a script.)
