Problems with debugger

Mybe I am not lucky enought, but I am not able to run idb.
All I got is:
--------
~/SRC/KAON> idb kpawa
Linux Application Debugger for 32-bit applications, Version 7.0, Build 20021021
------------------
object file name: kpawa
Reading symbolic information ...WARNING: Unrecognized programming language encountered.
Attempting to use C Language rules
Assertion failed: symbolId src/st/file/parsesymsdwarf2.C 5955
This is an unexpected condition and may indicate the presence of a defect.

Do not know how to unwind a stack on this machine!!

The only reason I can think about is unsupported kernel version (2.4.19-4GB from SuSe Linux 8.1).
Could you tell me which Linux distributions works with idb or give some other suggestions?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

idb has been tested on Red Hat 7.2 and 7.3.
SuSE 8.1 is more recent, but uses the same glibc as Red Hat 7.3, and only a slightly different kernel, it would be rather surprising if that made a difference.
I suggest you submit an issue with a test case to Intel Premier Support at https://premier.intel.com explaining exactly how you build it.

Please see the thread "Red Hat 8.0 Support?"
It turns out that the newer version of gcc is the issue, not the kernel. A patch that addresses this will be available shortly to those with support. In the longer term, it will be incorporated in the next compiler release.
