Description hjl 2002-04-18 16:35:52 UTC


That is a new bug.  At least, gdb 4.17 works fine.

Comment 2 John Kacur 2002-05-02 14:49:45 UTC
Confirmed that this is also a problem on ia64, and unfortunately, is not fixed with gdb 5.2

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-05-02 14:53:39 UTC
I didn't see much positive feedback when the patch was posted on the gdb-list,
so I'll wait a bit...

Comment 4 hjl 2002-05-02 16:10:18 UTC
I have 3 outstanding gdb patches:


I sent an email to Jim Blandy  <jimb@redhat.com>
when he broke gdb for ld.so on RedHat 7.x.:


But I got no responses from him.

Comment 5 Jim Blandy 2003-02-15 00:26:48 UTC
I believe I've reverted the change that caused this breakage.

2002-09-18  Jim Blandy  <jimb@redhat.com>

	* dbxread.c, mdebugread.c: Revert my change of 2001-10-23.  Moving
	texthigh and textlow to reader-specific structs caused
	objfile_relocate to miss them.  This is fixable, but the work that
	the change was supposed to prepare GDB for never got done anyway.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2006-08-04 20:07:22 UTC
Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED
state for these products.

However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
