Description Sergio Basto 2020-08-31 21:16:50 UTC
Description of problem:
instead of use

    dnf --enablerepo='*debug*' install /usr/lib/debug/.build-id/69/b41b2860e58dc8dfd849fb73ca4a5d8a7676d0.debug

we can use 

    dnf debuginfo-install /usr/lib/debug/.build-id/69/b41b2860e58dc8dfd849fb73ca4a5d8a7676d0.debug

which works perfectly.

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


Actual results:

gdb ask wrongly to enable all *debug* repos which may enable debug repos from repos that aren't enabled 

Expected results:
gdb ask to use  dnf debuginfo-install

I've seen these messages too.  Using "dnf debuginfo-install" does indeed work.  I'll see what I can do...

Comment 3 Alexandra Petlanová Hájková 2021-10-07 08:42:26 UTC
I reproduced this for the current Fedora Rawhide branch:

1)I built Fedora Rawhide (with the local patches applied)
2)./gdb  --args ./gdb /bin/ls -ex 'b write'


Reading symbols from /bin/ls...
Missing separate debuginfo for /usr/bin/ls
Try: yum --enablerepo='*debug*' install /usr/.build-id/20/4c65bc2621d8d2f61a19ab74edcd738f71aadc.debug
