Description Jan Pobrislo 2012-11-16 12:32:12 UTC
Python now bundles a script for >=sys-devel/gdb-7 (the one which supports python extensions).
This is currently installed at 
/usr/share/doc/${PN}/examples/Tools/gdb/ but gdb expects it at /usr/share/gdb/auto-load/${soname} for it to be autoloaded. Symlinking to desired location works too, eg.:
/usr/share/gdb/auto-load/usr/lib64/ -> /usr/share/doc/python-2.7.3-r2/examples/Tools/gdb/

Reproducible: Always
