Comment 1 Jan Kratochvil 2006-07-25 07:28:31 EDT
While FC5 (gdb- is still broken RawHide (gdb-6.5-3.fc6) is already
fixed.  Suggesting CLOSED-RAWHIDE.

(gdb) printf "%zu", (size_t)1
Unrecognized format specifier 'z' in printf
(gdb) q
bash-3.1# rpm -qv gdb
Comment 2 Jan Kratochvil 2006-08-15 20:04:10 EDT
Thanks for the bugreport, Fedora Core backport will not be done as it is not
considered so serious. Please rpmbuild --rebuild FC6 or RawHide gdb-*.src.rpm if
the fix would be needed.
