glibc-debuginfo libraries stripped?!



Hallo Group Members

I just installed glibc-debuginfo-2.5-10.fc6 on my fedora fc6, just to get some debug symbols from it.
It turns out that libraries do not contain debug symbols:

prompt$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/debug/lib/ld-2.5.so.debug /usr/lib/debug/lib/i686/nosegneg/libc-2.5.so.debug
glibc-debuginfo-2.5-10.fc6
glibc-debuginfo-2.5-10.fc6

prompt$ objdump -t /usr/lib/debug/lib/i686/nosegneg/libc-2.5.so.debug
/usr/lib/debug/lib/i686/nosegneg/libc-2.5.so.debug:     file format elf32-i386

SYMBOL TABLE:
no symbols

prompt$ objdump -t /usr/lib/debug/lib/ld-2.5.so.debug
/usr/lib/debug/lib/ld-2.5.so.debug:     file format elf32-i386

SYMBOL TABLE:
no symbols

why is debuginfo package for, then?

Regards,
Pawel
