Description Andrew Cagney 2008-03-03 20:00:00 UTC
frysk uses elfutils to find/verify debuginfo.  Sometimes elfutils chooses to
reject an installed .debug file.  When this occures fdebuginfo should list why
the file is rejected just like it lists files that are accepted.  For instance:

  $ fdebuginfo $$
  /bin/bash --- bad crc check (/usr/lib/debug/usr/bin/ls.debug)
  /usr/lib/libc.so --- no such file or directory
(/usr/lib/debug/usr/lib/libc.so.debug)

this would make it easier for users (and us) to understand why the debug-info we
thought we had installed isn't.
