Name        : elfutils
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 0.152
Release     : 1.fc14
URL         : https://fedorahosted.org/elfutils/
Summary     : A collection of utilities and DSOs to handle compiled objects
Description :
Elfutils is a collection of utilities, including ld (a linker),
nm (for listing symbols from object files), size (for listing the
section sizes of an object or archive file), strip (for discarding
symbols), readelf (to see the raw ELF file structures), and elflint
(to check for well-formed ELF files).

Update Information:

This update fixes bugs in libdwfl when handling prelinked files with separate debug files. These bugs would manifest when using SystemTap user-space probes on prelinked DSO and executable files. Versions 0.150 and 0.151 fixed some of these cases but introduced regressions for others. Version 0.152 resolves all the known cases correctly.

This update also adds the new -l (--verbose) and --ignore-build-id options to the eu-elfcmp utility.
