Well, since I was looking for debuginfo-install as something yum would 
list, I would have never gotten close to the fact that debuginfo-install 
was a program in and of itself.

There is a part of me that wants to go "oh, I am just a newbie" but I 
have to admit there is a bigger part that says that I've been mucking in 
this code for "a very long time" and I think the messages in gdb aren't 
telling me what I need to do. Groan, that's just the way many things are.

As to the question of f14, I am kinda stuck at the moment as the Fedora 
world is happily (big smile) moving to f16 and I have to deal with Maya 
whose upcoming release is pegged to f14.

Really appreciate the quick turnaround on help on this one, now I just 
have to figure out what my program is doing which has caused me to ask 
these questions.
