Re: [opensuse-factory] using gdb in inst-sys to get backtraces
* Dne Středa 12. březen 2014, 09:42:48 [CET] Olaf Hering napsal:

Is there some easy way to use gdb in inst-sys? Right now the binary is
not even included, and even if it would be there the debuginfo files
would be missing.

If the system to debug has enough memory it shouldnt be hard to load
more required files into memory to simplify backtrace gathering, like in
bnc#867919

In this case, to get the backtrace for tar,
you can copy the tar.debug file from tar-debuginfo package
to the directory where the tar binary resides.
See https://sourceware.org/gdb/onlinedocs/gdb/Separate-Debug-Files.html
