Description

How to reproduce:

Start suricata in the foreground. Kill it with a abort signal

sudo kill -n ABRT `pidof suricata`

Suricata will now abort and dump core.
gdb /usr/bin/suricata core

In gdb
thread apply all bt

No Suricata function names will be printed, only ???

Further info:

I think "stripped" in this output means the symbols have been stripped:

# file /usr/bin/suricata
/usr/bin/suricata: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.24, stripped

The binary is bigger than the "suricata" one though:

(suricata-dbg) # ls -lh /usr/bin/suricata
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3.6M 2012-12-04 03:14 /usr/bin/suricata
(suricata) # ls -lh /usr/bin/suricata
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1.8M 2012-12-04 03:03 /usr/bin/suricata

Ah I see the difference between the packages. suricata-dbg has --enable-debug while the other has not. I think the -dbg should have CFLAGS="-ggdb -O0" instead of --enable-debug.

It has them (CFLAGS="-ggdb -O0") in the configure line , but your point about the "stripped" output could be correct.
plus we have to check the dh_strip behaviour as well ....
investigating...
