/usr/share/gdb/auto-load/ needs filesystem symlinks
Last modified: 2013-09-24 19:02:40 EDT
Description of problem:
The usr/ symlinks bin+lib+lib64+sbin need to be present also in /usr/share/gdb/auto-load/ .
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Undefined command: "heap". Try "help".
Domain Kind Detail Count Allocated size

One can "fix" it by:
ln -s ../../lib64/ld-2.17.so-gdb.py /usr/share/gdb/auto-load/usr/lib64/ld-2.17.so-gdb.py
Fortunately no other packages besides gdb-heap uses non-usr/ directories.
Moreover gdb-heap uses it incorrectly but that is Bug 665799.

It seems, that gdb-18.104.22.16830731-9.fc20 have wrong symlinks in auto-load directory: bin -> "usr/bin". It may be better to use full path '/usr/bin' or long relative path "../../../bin".
That is correct as it is. You can also look it is similar in /usr/lib/debug/ .
/bin/ is the same as /usr/bin/ .
Therefore /usr/lib/debug/bin/ should be the same as /usr/lib/debug/usr/bin/ .
And also /usr/share/gdb/auto-load/bin/ should be the same as /usr/share/gdb/auto-load/usr/bin/ .
(Whether /bin should be a symlink at all is off-topic for this Bug.)
