- Subject: An install question and a bug
Mandrake Linux 8.1, gcc 2.96, gdb 5.1.1
When I configure the source code for gdb 5.1.1, it says after a while . . .
checking for tgetent in -lterminfo... no
configure: error: Could not find a term library
Configure in /home/salman/softdev/gdb/gdb-5.1.1/gdb failed, exiting.
What is term library? Where do I install this from?
Here is a bug that I just submitted through the bug reporting database on
the gdb homepage. I searched for it in the archives and someone asked the
exact same question but didn't receive a reply. Anyone has a solution or
patch to this?:
Cannot look at global variables inside a C++ namespace
reproducable on 5.0 and 5.1 of gdb
Assuming the code:
using namespace std;
float fSomeVar = 67.8;
float fSomeVar = 27.2;
float fSomeVar = 23.0;
FOO::fSomeVar = 100.0;
BAR::fSomeVar = 200.0;
fSomeVar = 300.0;
cout << FOO::fSomeVar << endl;
cout << BAR::fSomeVar << endl;
cout << fSomeVar << endl;
The gdb output as is follows---Please note that I have tried the string with
and without single-quotes. GDB doesn't find the symbol without the
quotes---with the quotes it is giving me a junk value:
