Thanks Volker.

This is part of Suse Linux distro from Novell, I need to find the
.dbginfo rpm.  Let me see if I can get my hands on it.

I know about ".configure --enable-debug" to build my own version with
debug symbol, but in this case I don't have that option as it is a core
from a customer.

That depends upon where you got that version from. If it's a distro RPM
for example, there should be a .debuginfo RPM next to the binary RPMs.
3.2.11-0.1.145 looks like a very specific distro RPM.

If you compiled it yourself, you should for example

CFLAGS=-g make

and not use the command strip while installing the binaries.

Hope that helps,
