I installed all the debuginfo packages that seem relevant to what I'm
debugging, but I still can't find the ones that cover the following
GDB suggests I install debuginfos for these packages:
but said debuginfos either don't exist (e.g. libjpeg) or don't seem to
contain the debug symbols for the library being linked (e.g.
libXScrnSaver-debuginfo doesn't provide debuginfo for /usr/lib/libXss.so.1).
Am I missing something, or is something broken here?
I checked some of these packages and I can also not find the debuginfo
for them. If there is a debuginfo version of a package, but the
symbols are missing, than that is likely a packaging issue (need to
compile with -g and not strip the binaries during the build-process).
However, depending on the issue you hit, some debuginfo's will not add
(much) value to the stacktrace. I'd suggest to see what gdb can do
with your core, and see if the stacktrace is complete. You might well
have all the information that is needed already.
