Thanks. I will check that next time.

Heh, coincidentally I started my day with reading that before, but
thanks. At least, it is a confirmation that I am on the right track.

Well, I am not sure why it does not work. Yocto generates the images
for me, but that is not important here as long as the dwarf
information looks correct after its operation in the provided readelf
output. So, provided that the dwarf information looks correct, and the
files are there, I am not sure why gdb cannot find src/bar.c in
.../git/meh (path above). I will check "show directories" what gdb
sees in my case, but if that does not help, I am not sure how to make
it work. Got a clue?
