I'm having some problems with gdb 5.2.1 on Solaris when I compile my
applications with gcc 3.2. The symptoms are not the same as David's
ones, but I think this may be related. Here's a more precise situation :
gcc 3.2 with -g option => I can debug with gdb 5.0 without problem, but
gdb5.2 is unusable (breakpoints put at the
wrong place for the most)
gcc 3.2 with -gdwarf-2 => I can debug with gdb 5.2 !
Unfortunately, I depend on libs which are compiled with -g, so I'm stuck
debugging with gdb 5.0... Is this a known issue ? Is there any solution
PS : We build only 32-bits libs/binaries and our GDBs are 32bits too.
