Description Göran Uddeborg 2015-11-18 16:52:10 EST
The interface between Gdb and Emacs is broken.  See the upstreams bugs for details:


The bug is apparently fixed in the development sources.  Would it be possible to have this fix backported to the Fedora package?  Or do we have to wait for Emacs 25 to be released and packaged?
Comment 1 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2015-12-15 06:27:33 EST
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 4 Göran Uddeborg 2016-02-04 16:14:14 EST
Unfortunately, emacs-24.5-7.fc23 does not seem to fix this problem.
Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2016-02-04 18:22:15 EST
emacs-24.5-7.fc23 has been pushed to the Fedora 23 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 6 Göran Uddeborg 2016-02-05 13:57:44 EST
As mentioned, the problem unfortunately remains.  The test case in http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=21940 still fails in the same way for me.
Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 08:33:45 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2016-12-20 11:04:18 EST
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
