B.24. gdb

Updated gdb packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The GNU debugger, gdb, allows the debugging of programs written in C, C++, and other languages by executing them in a controlled fashion and then printing out their data.
Bug Fix
After you issued the command 'info program', GDB could have terminated unexpectedly, because a change of the shared library list corrupted the data in the internal GDB structure 'bpstat'. With this update, the 'bpstat' structure contains after a change in the shared library list the correct data and the command 'info program' works as expected.
All users of gdb are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
