Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 206508
Please provide bochs-debuggerand bochs-gdb versions
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
bochs-2.3-2 should show up on a mirror near you soon and includes the 2
requested special versions.
