That's a first. A message forums that watches our list and doubles as an interface to it. Anyways, your answer is, unfortunately, no. I've discovered the usefulness of ltrace many a time on x86, but ltrace is one of those unique programs that needs some porting before it can run on a new architecture. There's documentation within the ltrace source explaining what information it needs to properly run on a new architecture, but I've discovered that this documentation is not very clear on how to properly obtain the information and put it to use within ltrace. As such, ltrace will have to simply sit in the dust bin of time until someone with the skill gets an inclination to port it to mips (and sparc, which could also use it). --Kumba -- Gentoo/MIPS Team Lead Gentoo Foundation Board of Trustees "Such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere." --Elrond -- gentoo-mips@g.o mailing list
