Bugs come in many forms like emerge failures or segmentation faults. Whatever the cause, the fact still remains that such a bug must be fixed. Here is a few examples of such bugs.

Code Listing 1.1: A run time error

$ ./bad_code `perl -e 'print "A"x100'`
Segmentation fault

Code Listing 1.2: An emerge failure

/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.3.2/include/g++-v3/backward/backward_warning.h:32:2: warning: #warning This file includes at least one deprecated or antiquated header. Please consider using one of the 32 headers found in section 17.4.1.2 of the C++ standard. Examples include substituting the <X> header for the <X.h> header for C++ includes, or <sstream> instead of the deprecated header <strstream.h>. To disable this warning use -Wno-deprecated. In file included from main.cc:40: menudef.h:55: error: brace-enclosed initializer used to initialize ` OXPopupMenu*' menudef.h:62: error: brace-enclosed initializer used to initialize ` OXPopupMenu*' menudef.h:70: error: brace-enclosed initializer used to initialize ` OXPopupMenu*' menudef.h:78: error: brace-enclosed initializer used to initialize ` OXPopupMenu*' main.cc: In member function `void OXMain::DoOpen()': main.cc:323: warning: unused variable `FILE*fp' main.cc: In member function `void OXMain::DoSave(char*)': main.cc:337: warning: unused variable `FILE*fp' make[1]: *** [main.o] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/xclass-0.7.4/work/xclass-0.7.4/example-app' make: *** [shared] Error 2 !!!

GDB, or the (G)NU (D)e(B)ugger, is a program used to find run time errors that normally involve memory corruption. First off, let's take a look at what debugging entails. One of the main things you must do in order to debug a program is to emerge the program with FEATURES="nostrip".
