Reading through this
bug is seriously
depressing to read (until Michael Matz steps in).
It was always complete madness to strip symbols from shipping binaries;
it was always
madness to disable the frame pointer too. (The debuginfo trick is an
to the problems of source-level debugging, by the way, it’s just taken
way, way, too far).
This is why you have to install a 1Gb debuginfo RPM in order to run
OProfile on the kernel. Crazy.
It’s a good read if you like to see certain people behaving like asshats
to their fellow community
My favourite quote from I Am Neurotic:
“Everyday, at 7:47 am or pm, I always say Boeing, after the Airplane,
and I don’t know why. I’ve gotten into a lot of trouble, and I even say
it in my sleep.”
It’s already extremely difficult to watch US TV, with adverts every 7

“It used to be that all of the good

music anywhere, I find that the music seems generally boring or has too
much of a political or sinful feel."

Mario Kart and Wii Fit to sell them. It’s not even Christmas.
Mario Kart isn’t even in shop charts. I’ve been past several shops

a weird story already, but that illustrative photo, and especially its
caption, are just plain bizarre.
This finally annoyed me enough to find a solution.
If I set a title on a gnome-terminal tab, then it gets forgotten next
time I log in. Aside from the GNOME default to not save your session
(whuh?), the problem is this: on Fedora, /etc/bashrc forces
PROMPT_COMMAND to set the xterm title.
This wouldn’t really be a problem, if I could disable setting of dynamic
titles in gnome-terminal preferences. However, gnome-terminal thinks
that a manually-set (Terminal->Set Title) title is somehow “dynamic”,
so if you do that, you can never set the title to anything else.
Seeing as I use the tab titles to work what machine I’m on, that’s quite
The “solution” was to just edit /etc/bashrc so it doesn’t force a
PROMPT_COMMAND I don’t want.
