Look at it this way - it's more information than you had before, not

having un-stripped binaries).

Which brings up another thing, all the ones I'm getting are without
debuginfo installed, which is rather gruesome. Can we get info sharedlib
called in the gdb batch (https://fedorahosted.org/abrt/ticket/90)

I have had problems with using abrt to report a problem because the backtrace
does not include symbolics ... that is, debuginfo was not downloaded and

At least once during the F12 development cycle I used abrt to report a problem
and it downloaded and installed the needed debuginfo packages.

Is abrt suppose to download and install debuginfo packages?  Is this an option
and if it is how is it enabled?  Is there an abrt bug right now preventing
debuginfo processing?


Yes, ABRT is supposed to download and use the debuginfo (it doesn't install it actually, but that's another thing), but there are many potential problems that may prevent ABRT from finding/donwloading the proper debuginfo (most common is that yum --provides doesn;t work for some files :() You can always use debuginfo-install and then recreate the backtrace in ABRT.
