Hello dear Clear Linux developers.
I'm Giacomo from Italy.
On my clear linux installation, system version (27660), gdb is very slow
from the moment it is started up to its prompt.
It often crashes after "loading" symbols.
This is an example output.
Let me know if I can help more.
clearlinux doesn't distribute debuginfo packages directly to clients,
but loads them on demand. This is described in this article I wrote:
I can't currently find any better documentation, although the link
describes how it works fairly well.
What may often happen is that the first download attempts time out from
gdb's perspective. However, in the background these debuginfo fetches
Because coredumpctl will store the coredumps for a while, you can just
come back a few minutes later and get all the debuginfo symbols.
That's not entirely ideal, but it certainly is a lot better than having
to download all debuginfo, which is gigabytes of information. This way,
you only need to download the exact bits that are needed.
