Details

Updated gdb packages that resolve an issue with excessive time and memory
usage are now available.

The GNU debugger, gdb, allows the debugging of programs written in C, C++,
and other languages by executing them in a controlled fashion and then
printing out their data.

These updated gdb packages address an issue with excessive slowness and
memory usage of the gcore command when debugging very large programs.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated gdb packages, which resolve
this issue.
