PostPosted: Tue Mar 11, 2014 3:07 am    Post subject: Cannot debug with gdb Reply with quote

I cannot debug my program with gdb, I am running into an error I cannot find how to fix it. My gdb did work previously, however I was a bit of time without using it and some updates were applied to various ebuilds. Since then, it is no longer working. It may be unrelated.

Here is the error while starting gdb my_program and then run:

warning: no loadable sections found in added symbol-file system-supplied DSO at 0x7ffff7ffa000
warning: Could not load shared library symbols for
Do you need "set solib-search-path" or "set sysroot"?
[Inferior 1 (process 3437) exited normally]

Here is the emerge --info gdb output:

sys-devel/gdb-7.6.1 was built with the following:
USE="client expat (multilib) nls python server zlib -multitarget -test -vanilla" ABI_X86="64"

Any hints or things I could try to gather more information to fix this?

Perhaps you could tell us what is wrong. The output shown so far looks like you ran to program exit without any problems. I see no errors in that output. The warnings that are printed are unlikely to be relevant to your problem.
