    gdb error

    I could debug things gdb before this just fine

    I'm using
    c++ -fno-for-scope -fno-const-strings -ggdb3 -o borq ../Source/Utils/loadpng.o BorQueror.o MainContinue.o (Other libs and object files)

    Now.. when I try to debug it,

    gdb borq

    (It segfaults :P)
    I type list, and I get an error:

    (gdb) list
    1 ../sysdeps/i386/elf/start.S: No such file or directory.
    in ../sysdeps/i386/elf/start.S

    This happens on every program actually, all that I've tried anyway, even some that where not compiled on my computer.
    Anyone have any clue as to what's going on?

    looks like gdb doesnt have the files needed for the elf header structure.

    Yup, part of glibc..
    I have the newest version of said library
    Worked fine 3 weeks ago..
    No clue what to do short of recompiling and installing it.. but glibc, is sometimes hard to install and can really mess things up.

    Anyone have a clue how I can fix this without reinstalling?

    rather than recompile use a (dare I say) precompiled binary like an RPM

    I only use RPMs for glibc nothing else.

    I don't really like RPM.. way too buggy and unstable
    But what I will do.. is open it, and extract the files I'm missing and put them in place.
    I have the newest version of glibc anyway
