There was no option for 6.0 on the powertools bug report
area.  So I put it under 5.2.  I hope this still is ok.
When I install a default install of 6.0 on a machine and
then add in ddd from the 6.0 powertools tree it can't start
gdb, or at least it says that, when started.  The odd thing
is that from the command line I can fire off gdb no
problem.  DDD just seems to not be able to.

If you don't want to apply the patch, get v3.1.5 at:

wait until the next powertools release

*** Bug 3926 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

I installed ddd from you "Linux Powertools" which was part
of RH6.0 Extra package. However if I try to start it I get
an error message that "perl" or "gdm" could not be started.
On the terminal where I start the ddd I get following line:

perl: cannot open /dev/pts/1: Input/output error (or same
starting with gdb).

On this host use ready kernel from your errata pages: 2.2.5-
