Description H. Peter Anvin 2006-09-14 15:30:04 EDT
Description of problem:

Bochs is extremely useful for debugging low-level programs like bootloaders. 
Unfortunately, there are two ways of doing it -- Bochs builtin debugger, which
is better for debugging real- or cross-mode programs, and the Bochs gdb stub,
which is better for debugging protected mode programs.

Worse, this is a compile-time option in Bochs.

It would be nice if two RPMs with slighly altered versions of the bochs binary
could be provided -- bochs-debugger with the builtin debugger
(--enable-x86-debugger --enable-debugger) and bochs-gdb with the gdb stub
(--enable-x86-debugger --enable-gdb-stub).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2006-09-14 15:49:57 EDT
Sounds reasonable, unfortunatly I'm rather busy the coming days / weeks. But I
would be more then happy to take a specfile patch for this.
Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2006-09-22 16:28:25 EDT
bochs-2.3-2 should show up on a mirror near you soon and includes the 2
requested special versions.
