We have been having problems recently getting a copy of gdb 4.17 to work
under solaris 2.4 on a sparc20. Using gcc 22.214.171.124, which seems to compile
correctly, and copies of gdb both built from source and also a prebuilt
binary downloaded from Sunfreeware.com, I am unable to read any core file.
The message I always get is:
core: not in executable format: File format not recognized
I am beginning to think that the problem lies not with the build of gdb,
but more with the configuration of gcc. Can anyone help me? I have run
out of ideas about the cause of this.....
