[Circle] GDB - not working (possible solution)

I noticed there were some people stating that they couldn't get GDB 
to recognise there core file.  I had the same problem and have since 
solved it by updating the GDB I was using.

What i had :  gdb 4.14,  linux 2.0.0
what i got now : gdb 5.15.1 same linux

I found the enw version for gdb on the debian/linux site and it takes 
a bit of work getting it and getting it out of the debian packet and 
in to get it to run if your not using debian/linux (ie your using 
slackware).  But it was worth it and now i get recognised cores and 
can start uncommenting out the core dumb bits and fixing them.

Hope this helps some people, feel free to mail me if you require more
