Description Matej Habrnal 2016-10-31 14:47:09 UTC
Description of problem:
I have gdb-headless rpm installed on my Fedora 25 and using gcore to generate coredump. gcore ends with "gcore: GDB binary (/bin/gdb) not found" error.

If I understand it correctly gcore script evaluates gdb binary full path from its own path which is /bin/gcore and hence it tries to find gdb binary in /bin/gdb. gdb is no longer placed in /bin/gdb but in /usr/libexec/gdb.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdb-headless-7.12-24.fc25.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sleep 1000 &
2. gcore `echo $!`
3.

Actual results:
gcore: GDB binary (/usr/bin/gdb) not found

Expected results:
coredump is saved
