GDB core dump: Find executable by build-id

view full story

http://stackoverflow.com – Is it possible to make gdb automatically find the corresponding executable file? I have extracted the debug symbols and put them in the /usr/lib/debug/.build-id/ directory. When I start gdb with gdb /usr/bin/executable core everything is working fine. All debug symbols for the executable and all shared libraries are automatically loaded because gdb knows about the build-id and automatically loads it. $ gdb /usr/bin/executable core GNU gdb (GDB) 7.0.1-debian Copyright (C) 2009 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
