Description Miroslav 2001-01-28 11:13:22 UTC
Moving from RH 5.1 to 7.0. (LINUX 2.2.16-22 - dm - GNOME)
xxgdb 1.12-16 not responding properly on mouse requests.
variables rapporting as not existing.
(The same fenomena under fw95)

So long using xxgdb 1.12-5.

None of them seem to work very well right now... looking into it. In the
meantime, I heartily recommend ddd which is a much better GUI - we'll probably
obsolete xxgdb at some point.

Comment 2 Miroslav 2001-01-31 23:28:38 UTC
Where to find ddd?

Regards Miroslav

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-31 23:30:23 UTC
xxgdb is very dated, and has problems in interaction with X... we're obsoleting
in in our next release. As an alternative, I'll recommend ddd (part of
powertools), kdevelop or insight.

Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-01-31 23:32:31 UTC
You can find ddd on the powertools CD or in the powertools archive on ftp - it's
a wonderful application and I've used it for years, the only reason for it not
being in main is that we're a bit scheptical about then openmotif license (it's
free, but only if used on a free  (as in speach) OS - so while not a problem on
Linux or FreeBSD, it isn't quite open)
