Do you still have problems with the latest rawhide version of gdb?
Comment 2 R.K.Aa. 2004-03-15 03:45:05 EST
When trying to debug mozilla (which worked like charm back in RH7.2
and 8.0), i now get this instead:

$ ./mozilla -g -d gdb
./run-mozilla.sh -g -d gdb ./mozilla-bin
/usr/bin/gdb ./mozilla-bin -x /tmp/mozargs2517

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.

Closing as CANTFIX.
