Details

Updated gdb packages that resolve an issue 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 fix a bug which occurred when debugging programs
using shared libraries with no code sections. On Itanium architectures,
this could cause gdb to crash.

All users of gdb are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve this issue.
