linux kernel, pentium m
gdb refuses to debug anything, even programs, like "hello world". I can reproduce this problem with rpm's, building from scratch

as soon as I say "run"  it says

I guess this is a mismatch with some library tsl? libc?

(gdb) run
Starting program: /home/eckmann/export/it 

[1]  +  7140 Suspended (signal)            gdb it

Program terminated with signal SIGKILL, Killed.
The program no longer exists.
You can't do that without a process to debug.
looking through google this seems a FAQ, but I could not find an answer. In particular  ignoring signals does not help
