Description Allan McRae 2013-05-07 11:05:12 UTC
Since revision r195931, running anything compiled with gccgo without any compile flags gives:

# ./a.out 
no debug info in ELF executable errno -1
fatal error: no debug info in ELF executable

Adding "-g" to the compile line results in a working binary, but stripping this binary results in the same error.
Comment 1 Ian Lance Taylor 2013-05-07 18:47:42 UTC
Note that in general Go requires debug info.  It will not work to build a Go program without -g, nor will it work to strip a Go program.
Comment 2 gp 2013-05-09 07:41:53 UTC
IMHO, this is nevertheless a bug. If the debug info must stay, they should be unstrippable. Moreover, gcc should add the -g flag "silently".
Comment 3 Christopher Meng 2013-08-08 08:45:47 UTC

I'm building snowbox(go program), and also it threw out such errors after running.
Comment 4 Ian Lance Taylor 2015-02-03 20:05:28 UTC
This was reopened later, and is now fixed.
