    Default How do I debug a program in Kdbg 2.5.1 on openSUSE 12.2(X86_64)?

    Hi,

    I want to debug a program using Kdbg. When I open an executable Kdbg displays a warning dialog with the title "Sorry". The text is:
    GDB: Reading symbols from <path to my executable> ...done.
    No hint why it is sorry about that. Afterwards, I cannot do anything useful (run, step into, step over,...), as all the buttons and menu items for these actions are grayed out. If I invoke gdb directly, it displays the same message (Reading symbols []... done). I can run my program using gdb.
    I use the default settings of Kdbg.

    Any hints appreciated.

    Thanks, Stephan

    i _think_ you are trying to run a KDE3 program, in KDE4....theoretically
    it should _work_, but....good luck!

    i see very few questions in our forums, way back...see:
    https://www.google.dk/search?q=site%...nsuse.org+Kdbg

    i did find a post where one person said upgrading to Kdbg to 7-something
    solved the problem..

    you might find more help in a forum specialized on Kdbg, try:

    Hi,

    Kdbg 2.5.1 uses KDE platform 4.8.5. I don't think it's for KDE3.
    I installed some additional debug libraries (from the debug repository). Now the ddd debugger works fine. The behavior of Kdbg is still the same, though.

    Thanks, Stephan
