Description Glen A. Foster 2003-02-07 22:14:03 UTC
Description of problem: IA64 supports 32-bit Intel instruction set emulation 
and ships a set of x86-compat-libs to allow 32-bit Intel code to run on IA64 
(and IPF).  Yet, running "objdump -d elf-32-format-file" fails on IA64, which 
is understandable since it's not the matching architecture.  However, 
instruction set emulation seems to warrant a case for adding support for dis-
assembling elf-32 binaries on an 64-bit Intel architecture.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qf $(which objdump)

How reproducible: 100% (always)

Steps to Reproduce:

... run these steps on an IA64/IPF system...
1. scp intel32bithost:/usr/bin/objdump /tmp
2. objdump -d /tmp/objdump
Actual results:

/tmp/objdump:  file format elf32-little

objdump: /tmp/objdump: no symbols
objdump: Can't disassemble for architecture UNKNOWN!

Should be fixed in and later (ATM -5).
