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.
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.
