Description Patrick J. LoPresti 2003-04-09 16:19:30 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
When I run "rpm -qip glibc-debug-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm", the description includes
this sentence:

  "If you want to see glibc source files during debugging, you should
install glibc-debuginfo package."

But as far as I can see, there is no glibc-debuginfo package anywhere on any
RedHat 9 media.  (Nothing I can download, anyway.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "rpm -i" on glibc-debug package.
2. Read description carefully.
3. Look for glibc-debuginfo package in vain.

Actual Results:  I couldn't find glibc-debuginfo.

Expected Results:  I should be able to find glibc-debuginfo.  Or the Description
in glibc-debug should be different...

That's not a glibc problem.  It a general decision to be made for the distribution.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-03-02 18:45:56 UTC
Debuginfo is shipped in Fedora Core, albeit not on the CDs/DVDs.
