Others have gdb debug symbols but I don't...
 
Using the same platform and the same code compiled with -g
My teammate can logon build the source, run, create a core file
>gdb Exename core.exename.pid
gdb> where
produces a backtrace to the line that the error occurred.

I login and build the same source, run, create a core file
>gdb Exename core.exename.pid
gdb> where
gives me minimal info as if I have no symbols loaded.

Checked our .bashrc and env for differences but find none. What? I give up!

Try this:http://www.delorie.com/gnu/docs/gdb/gdb_125.html

The following quote is from above link:
Quote:

file filename
Use filename as the program to be debugged. It is read for its symbols and for the contents of pure memory.

williawh 01-24-2011 08:27 AM

I will look at the provided link. However, remember that nothing is different except that I login to my account and my teammate logs into their account. They can get useful debug information, I can't. The Exe has the debug info built into it at compile time right? So I understand you are saying use the file command but typically this is not necessary

Yes, but there is no harm in trying since the cause of the problem is unknown!

could you send me the exact code you used please?

TheIndependentAquarius 01-26-2011 08:55 AM

Which code are you talking of? You must not be asking me to paste here a 'hello.c' of course!
