- Host/target specific installation notes
- Due to a problem (conflicting types) with libiberty/regex.c, GDB 5.1
- does not build on HP/UX 10.20 when using the HP supplied compiler.
- Due to bit rot, GDB 5.1 does not work on HP/UX 10.20 when built with
- Due to a problem with ltconfig and long argument lines, GDB 5.1 does
- not configure on HP/UX 11.00.
- GDB 5.1 has a number of problems on this platform (Ref PR gdb/237). A
- GDB 5.1 built with ``CC="cc -DUSE_LDR_ROUTINES"'' is reported to work
- much better.
- GDB 5.1 is known to have problems on this platform (encounters an
- internal error in the symbol table reader).
- There are known problems with building GDB 5.1 using GCC 3.0.x for the
- 64 bit SPARC target (bad code gen). You could try a development
- version of GCC.
- There are known problems with GDB 5.1's thread support on this
- platform. Non-threaded programs should work.
- GDB 5.1 assumes that the host C compiler implemends alloca(). GCC is
- one such compiler. This problem should be fixed on the trunk.
