From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20021216

Description of problem:
I was running gdb against rpm doing an upgrade when I got this:

/usr/src/build/192185-i386/BUILD/gdb+dejagnu-20021129/gdb/lin-lwp.c:1412:
internal-error: lin_lwp_wait: Assertion `iterate_over_lwps (running_callback,
NULL)' failed.
A problem internal to GDB has been detected.  Further
debugging may prove unreliable.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gdb rpm
2. run -U kernel-source-2.4.20-2.25.i386.rpm

    

Actual Results:  internal error

Expected Results:  no internal error

I can reproduce this 100% when attempting to debug "kword" from Gnome (Bug 80926).

[warren@laptop warren]$ rpm -q gdb
gdb-5.3post-0.20021129.7
[warren@laptop warren]$ rpm -q koffice
koffice-1.2.1-1
[warren@laptop warren]$ gdb kword

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2003-01-24 04:39:26 EST
Could this error message below about asynchronous errors be causing this gdb
internal error?

gnome-terminal without XRENDER

(gdb) run
Starting program: /usr/bin/gnome-terminal
(no debugging symbols found)...[New Thread 1087256288 (LWP 4561)]
Xlib:  extension "RENDER" missing on display "192.168.0.3:0.0".
The program 'gnome-terminal' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 723 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

This should be fixed in the next beta.
