Fedora Update Notification
2012-12-12 04:09:42

Name        : ltrace
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 0.7.2
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://ltrace.alioth.debian.org/
Summary     : Tracks runtime library calls from dynamically linked executables
Description :
Ltrace is a debugging program which runs a specified command until the
command exits.  While the command is executing, ltrace intercepts and
records both the dynamic library calls called by the executed process
and the signals received by the executed process.  Ltrace can also
intercept and print system calls executed by the process.

You should install ltrace if you need a sysadmin tool for tracking the
execution of processes.

Update Information:

0.7.* was released relatively recently and constitutes a major update.  It brings important improvements in handling parameter passing conventions, which means that functions of traced processes are more likely to have correct parameters.  It is not purely a bugfix release, but it's nonetheless stable and reliable.
