1. You should update to binutils-2.13
2. gdb-5.3 is due out on October 9 according to the gdb home page schedule.

Subject: 3.2

When I upgraded gcc to 3.2 I started to have problems with gdb.
I get this error which prevents me from debugging any 3.2 compiled binary:

(gdb) file some-bin-file-compiled-with-3.2
Reading symbols from test-config...Dwarf Error: Cannot handle DW_FORM_strp in 
DWARF reader.

My gdb is GNU gdb 20010813 (MI_OUT).

Also sometimes when linking I get this error:
/usr/bin/ld: Dwarf Error: Invalid or unhandled FORM value: 14.

My ld is GNU ld version (with BFD

Should I upgrade my binutils and/or gdb?
Thanks for your response..

and my gcc is:
Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.2/specs
Configured with: ./configure --enable-shared --with-gnu-as --with-gnu-ld 
--enable-threads=posix --enable-languages=c,c++
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.2
