i have installed FC3, and updated packages using yum [default] on

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2005-01-06 17:35:26 EST
Works for me just fine.  No matter what, this sounds like gdb issue, not gcc.
Comment 2 Sitsofe Wheeler 2005-01-06 17:44:47 EST
Might be a dup of bug #144021 ... Which kernel is running?
Comment 3 Havard Rue 2005-01-07 02:53:29 EST
Comment 4 Philippe Anel 2005-01-07 16:36:30 EST
Same probleme here.

Comment 5 Elena Zannoni 2005-01-07 17:18:20 EST
Yep, kernel problem.
Please use the updates-testing FC3 kernel.
Anything > kernel-2.6.10-1.1069_FC4.src.rpm should work.
Comment 6 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 16:27:28 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
Comment 7 Jan Kratochvil 2006-07-25 08:15:30 EDT
To be CLOSED-INSUFFICIENT_DATA (why it was not resolved this way after the
timeout automatically?).
Otherwise it would become CLOSED-CURRENTRELEASE anyway.
Comment 8 Matthew Miller 2006-07-25 08:43:12 EDT
Jan -- there is no automatic timeout. When this was discussed on the Fedora
maintainers list, there was general sentiment that bugs should be left in the
NEEDINFO state even if no info was forthcoming. But I'll go ahead and mark this
one specifically closed.
