After updating boost package via pacman to 1.75 gdb does't work.
Research showed that gdb also depends on libboost_regex:

ldd /usr/bin/gdb
... => not found
But it is not added in dependency list for gdb

Steps to reproduce:
Update boost libs via pacman
Try to run gdb
This task depends upon

Which gdb? It should be fine:

[jelle@t14][~]%ldd /usr/bin/gdb | grep boost => /usr/lib/ (0x00007faefd6bd000)
[jelle@t14][~]%pacman -Q gdb
gdb 10.1-4

Use "readelf -d" and not ldd. If it probably not gdb that is the issue, and something you have replaced in the dependency chain.

Yes, you are right so sorry, that was my bad. Thanks for your time
