(I sent this message a couple days ago, but it must have gotten lost
somewhere between my machine and the mailing list, because it still hasn't
shown up in the archives...)
Okay, I've built a -current kernel with
options KGDB # remote debugger
makeoptions DEBUG="-g" # compile full symbol table
and I have a second machine also running -current, and a null modem cable
hooked between the machines. Is there a quick tutorial anywhere on what to
do next? (Aside from the generalized info in the gdb info pages, that is)
Anybody have any pointers?
(Basically, I want to put breakpoints on a few functions and step through
them, but have the system behave normally otherwise).
