gdb error with slackware64-current


Good morning all -

I started futzing around with gdb a little and ran into an error with the version in 64-current. A short session is copied below.

Code:
chexmix@catbutt:~$ gdb

I Googled a bit and it does appear this is a known bug ... is this the sort of thing I should report (to PV, to ...?)? Can anyone replicate this?

Thanks,

Glenn

maybe you should file a bug on gdb's bugzilla

http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/descr...gi?product=gdb

if can be useful for the bug submission, I found these

I wound up not filing a bug -- it looked as though there were a couple of bugs filed on this issue already.

And I built 7.4, the current gdb release, for myself using src2pkg. It seems to work fine. I guess I'll find out whether this will cause problems with my system ... :/
