Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

$ gcc -g test.c
$ gdb a.out

Comment 1 Elena Zannoni 2003-01-10 17:09:30 UTC
Yes, this is (unfortunately) expected behavior. Gdb has not been ported yet to
work with the new NPTL thread library.
However, gdb should behave correctly if the program has no threads.

Comment 2 Shawn Walker 2003-01-20 07:39:59 UTC
What's the timeframe looking like on getting GDB to work with the new threaded

Comment 3 Elena Zannoni 2003-01-20 15:28:59 UTC
There is a patch in the next beta.
I am closing this bug report. If there are more problems, let's open new ones,
against the next beta.
