Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144453
strace nor working with kernel-2.6.9-1.724_FC3
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:57 EST
Description of problem:
strace-4.5.8-1 not working with the latest kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The only output I receive is:
execve("/bin/ping", ["ping", "server.domain"], [/* 21 vars */]) = 0
I was able to trace PIDs.
Try strace something, output always like the execve line above
Steps to Reproduce:
Going back to the previous kernel 2.6.9-1.681_FC3 solves the
I think the same error breaks gdb too. Whenever I try to debug
something, gdb refuses to start the program and says
warning: Child process unexpectedly missing: No child processes
Program terminated with signal ?, Unknown signal.
It also results in a core dump. This bug makes 2.6.9-1.724_FC3
completely useless, so please increase the priority of this bug.
With new updated kernel-2.6.10-1.737_FC3 strace/ltrace is OK...
This was a kernel issue and is now resolved anyway.
