Description psyclone42 1999-08-05 08:25:31 UTC
i noticed that readline-2.2-4 makes gdb- dump
core -- only debug info i could get was that the actual
segfault was in _IO_fflush (iofflush.c:41). there may be
other things it crashes.. suggest a minimum version for
readline be added, as readline-2.2.1-5 fixes it. (sure is
nice to have gdb back :) )

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-05 13:33:59 UTC
This is a glibc shared library problem. You cannot mix glibc-2.0.x
shared libraries with glibc-2.1 shared libraries because of structure
changes in libio (e.g. _IO_fflush). Recompile the old readline.
