Missing separate debuginfo

Hi, executed a program on a CentOS 5 box fine but when I did the same on a SuSE 11 box, I'm seeing the following.
Floating point exception
When I use GDB to run it, I'm seeing the following.

Missing separate debuginfo for /lib64/ 
Failed to read a valid object file image from memory. 

Program received signal SIGFPE, Arithmetic exception. 
0x00002aaaaaab368f in do_lookup_x () from /lib64/

The lib does exist. Any idea what's happening here?
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2010-04-26 22:41 /lib64/ ->
What's confusing is whenever I searching for this on Google, it appears they all (for example one that was asked on here previously) include the following messages (showing only one of them) from GDB which I'm not seeing for some reason.
Try: zypper install -C "debuginfo(build-id)=591af1afa33f255704fb6a60859b93d00e205302"
Missing separate debuginfo for /usr/lib64/
Can someone explain what is it that it's trying to complain? Since I'm not familiar with zypper (searched around for the 591af1afa33f255704fb6a60859b93d00e205302 code but didn't see anything useful), I'm not able to decipher what's the issue here.

The post you link to specifies build ids which may not be correct for your system.

This seems to be a very suse specific question, perhaps you would do better asking in a suse forum.

I'm sure were you to google "suse debuginfo" you would stumble across the opensuse doco on activating the debug repos as I did a while back. I don't currently have such a system, so I ignored it, but it looks like all you should need should be available.
