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

problem. DDD just seems to not be able to.

Powertools. The suggested patch is at

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

wait until the next powertools release

I installed ddd from you "Linux Powertools" which was part
of RH6.0 Extra package. However if I try to start it I get

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-
