Minimal GDB in buildroot

Summary

Create gdb-minimal package (without XML support, Python support, Syntax Highlight and such) and switch to it in buildroot.

Owner

Current status

Detailed Description

Create subpackage in gdb source package called gdb-minimal that will contain 2 files:

  • /usr/bin/gdb.minimal — GDB executable built without optional unneeded features
  • /usr/bin/gdb-add-index — Executable script shared with gdb-headless package (modified to fallback to gdb.minimal if exists)

debuginfo code in RPM needs just gdb-add-index and that one doesn't need any syntax highlight or python plugins to work.

As of Apr 26, following packages would disappear from buildroot:
