- Subject: .stabs description field is too big, try different format
I am using cygwin 1.3.12-2 and all of the latest available development
tools in my installation of cygwin. I have tried the compilation with
both the 2.95.2 and the 3.1.1 compilers available through the cygwin
setup.exe application. My computer is a PIII-600 with a win-2000 SP2
My problem us that when compiling with debugging information I get an
error message that the ".stabs description filed '11b78' too big, try a
different debug format. The '11b78' field is different for each error,
and there are many such fields.
I have tried to use stabs, stabs++ and dwarf-2 formats. I have also
tried to compile with -g1 (which results in reduced debugging
information). I have searched the mailing lists and the stabs
documentation for any information on how to address this issue and none
of the above attempts solved my problem.
The reason I am sending this to the cygwin mailing list and not the gcc
mailing list is that the same piece of code compiled with the same
compiler performed flawlessly when I used cygwin version 1.3.10.
However, this error has been with me since I upgraded.
It is not an option for me to take a step back and use the 1.3.10
version of cygwin because my apps had a seg fault on exit using the
1.3.10 version of the cygwin dll, yet the 1.3.12-2 dll does not have
I would appreciate any help or direction in dealing with this issue. I
am not on the cygwin mailing list so please include me in any replies.
Thanks in advance for help.
