Re: Stack trace from core file without executable
The goal of my initial posting was to try to ascertain whether frysk
does anything more clever than ebp unwinding and/or whether there was
some fundamental reason why gdb doesn't fall back on "the same thing."
I'll try applying the patch Daniel has suggested, and if that still
doesn't improve things, I'll dig around the code to try to determine
what might be going on.
Thanks to everyone for their help.

In any case, given that on several "important" (x86_64 being more

to be a very worthwhile goal to make this work on platforms where
it may work most of the time.
But if this is important for you, you are certainly welcome to fix
this and send in a patch to firstname.lastname@example.org :-)
