Postby JochenW » 30. Sep 2019, 14:15

Hi,

I am fully aware, that this is bleeding edge stuff (on more than one end), and that I have to expect this. But, reporting hurts noone, does it?

Thanks,

Jochen

Okay, sorry for the noise. Reading helps. Indeed, installing elfutils-libelf-devel *did* help.
