Bug Fix Advisory gdb bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0417-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-05-18
Last updated on: 2010-05-18
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated gdb packages that resolve an issue in the gstack shell script 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.

This update resolves the following issue:

* a bug in the gstack shell script suppressed the first line of a
backtrace. The first line uses frame identification #0 and lists the
current execution point (PC address). (Note: gstack can also be executed
under the name "pstack".) This update corrects /usr/bin/gstack which now
prints the entire backtrace including the first line. (BZ#580833)

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