Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 193074
nss-debuginfo contains no debug info for shared libraries
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
The nss-debuginfo package doesn't contain debug data for the shared libraries.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build an application with libnss3.
2. Attempt to debug the application.
3. The debugger won't find the data it needs.
The buildroot policy script which extracts debug information for inclusion in
the debuginfo package only examines ELF files with the execute bit set. The
%install portion of the .spec file installs the shared libraries with mode 0644,
so the policy script skips over them. Installing the shared libraries with mode
0755 during %install fixes the problem.
nss-3.11.2-1 should appear soon on the rawhide download server, which contains a
fix for thix bug
