Subject: Re: Wrong Perf Backtraces
Date: Tue, 31 Mar 2020 09:13:28 +0430
Message-ID: <c1a64287c45da58def62a45e44525f02@ut.ac.ir> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <8cb4f94b11fbac6ca3a44b924b6ee7b3@ut.ac.ir>

Hi,
I checked the reported address in libgtk. GDB could map it to the source 
files. Also, once, I read at Stackoverflow that perf gives up on 
printing the backtrace (truncates the output backtrace), whenever it 
detects a binary file without debug info. Could you describe more about 
this situation?
And dear Mr. Olsa, if these cases do not occur on your system, could you 
tell me how you installed the debug info for the binaries on your 
system, please?
Regards.
