Re: generating un-stripped libraries...

Are the libraries stripping, or the binaries? I don't think I've seen an
issue with the libraries stripping. The binaries, on the other hand, do
install -s if you 'make install'. One can get around this:


Yes, I had figured that out already and forced the binaries to be not-stripped.

As others have pointed out, honoring the STRIP variable in 2.3 is a welcome addition. For that matter, I'm going to include the boilerplate recommendation that if you're taking the trouble to recompile and start up gdb, you might as well try 2.2.27 while you're at it. Good luck...

I may get there... but right now, I'd just like to be able to get a reasonable back trace...

Here's what I'm seeing (which makes absolutely no sense to me):

# file openldap-2.2.26/servers/slurpd/slurpd
openldap-2.2.26/servers/slurpd/slurpd: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), not stripped

# openldap-2.2.26/servers/slurpd/slurpd -d -1
.... (a kill -6 is issued against the slurpd pid from another window)

# gdb openldap-2.2.26/servers/slurpd/slurpd core.632

With an unstripped binary and all the redhat debuginfo rpm's installed for the libraries (other than ldap)... this should show me real information... shouldn't it?
