Description of problem:
When I run "rpm -qip glibc-debug-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm", the description includes
"If you want to see glibc source files during debugging, you should
install glibc-debuginfo package."
But as far as I can see, there is no glibc-debuginfo package anywhere on any
RedHat 9 media. (Nothing I can download, anyway.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "rpm -i" on glibc-debug package.
2. Read description carefully.
3. Look for glibc-debuginfo package in vain.
Actual Results: I couldn't find glibc-debuginfo.
Expected Results: I should be able to find glibc-debuginfo. Or the Description
in glibc-debug should be different...
That's not a glibc problem. It a general decision to be made for the distribution.
Debuginfo is shipped in Fedora Core, albeit not on the CDs/DVDs.
