dbx and analyzing core dumps

dbx and analyzing core dumps

Post by J Stifl » Wed, 24 Nov 1999 04:00:00

I have a core file from a user of my software that was generated on a
SOLARIS 2.6 system.  When I try to evaluate the core dump using "dbx" using
the following command in "dbx"

  debug -c core <executable>

I receive the following error message:

  dbx: panic: Proc::get_rtld_stuff(): could not initialize rtld_db

I have set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the dynamic library directory for my
program.  Any ideas?

1. URGENT HELP: How do I analyze a core dump WITHOUT dbx ?


I just discovered that on a SUN, dbx is NOT included on the base
package, nor is it included when you buy only the SparWorks C/C++
compiler... (Isn't it stupid !)

Now, I have a problem....

I have a core dump from an oracle application and I need to know WHERE
it crashed... With dbx, it is easy, just 'dbx application core' issue
the command "where" and voila, you have the name of the function where
the program crashed...

I don't have dbx. Can I use adb instead ? If so, how do I do the
equivalent of a "where" in adb ?
