Description Dave Malcolm 2004-08-25 22:11:27 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)
Gecko/20040809

Description of problem:
Emacs GUD mode has never allowed me to debug libtoolised applications,
and this has been a source of annoyance to me.

So I tried applying the patch suggested here:
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnu-emacs/2003-08/msg00183.html

(which describes the same symptoms I've been having)

to my local Emacs and GUD mode now works much better for me (e.g. for
debugging Evolution).


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
emacs-21.3-12

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. invoke gdb command in Emacs
2. Run gdb (like this): libtool gdb evolution
3. libtool complains about unrecognised option `-cd' which GUD mode is
trying to pass to gdb
    

Actual Results:  libtool complains about unrecognised option `-cd'
which GUD mode is trying to pass to gdb, and bails out
    

Expected Results:  libtool to launch gdb and debug the application
