Description Denis Leroy 2007-10-11 09:17:16 UTC
I was trying to investigate a coredump problem in evolution that occurs in the
nspr library, but ran into the following debuginfo issue :

(gdb) up
#1  0x054b22a2 in PR_Lock (lock=0x0)
    at ../../../mozilla/nsprpub/pr/src/pthreads/ptsynch.c:206
206     ../../../mozilla/nsprpub/pr/src/pthreads/ptsynch.c: No such file or
        in ../../../mozilla/nsprpub/pr/src/pthreads/ptsynch.c

Is this a problem in the nspr-debuginfo package, or in the way nspr is built ?

# rpm -ql nspr-debuginfo |grep -i ptsynch.c

I don't know why gdb is unable to find the file. Maybe it does not know that it
needs to look into a directory named nspr-4.6.7? (Not likely,
evolution-debuginfo uses the same scheme for its files)

Comment 2 Denis Leroy 2007-10-11 14:21:51 UTC
Right, I'm not sure what's going. I'll try and write a simple test case and
update this bug accordingly.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 04:56:33 UTC
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
