Attaching gdb session to a service launched from rc.d
I am having trouble debugging with gdb a service that I am launching
When going `attach <pid>' in gdb (running as the same user as the user
under which the service is running.)
I get :
(gdb) attach 26536
Attaching to program:
/home/german/work/supportTools/Emailizer/Emailizer, process 26536
ptrace: Device busy.
Is it because I incorrectly start my service? (I do a fork.)
What's crazy is:
if I launch my service manually: (going `/etc/rc.d/mail start'.)
then I can attach and inspect, but I can't change threads.
If I restart my station (and the service autostart)
then I can't even attach.
Ok maybe it's not craazy, especially for the one who would know the
internal reasons why this is.
Anyways, all help is welcome.
I read avidly the Chapter 7 of NetBSD Guide and skimmed the PDF
referenced in it for all occurrences of the word `user' but did not find
an answer to my question :|.
