The GNU GDB Debugger and NetBSD (Part 4) September 10, 2020 posted by Kamil Rytarowski The NetBSD team of developers maintains two copies of GDB: One in the base-system with a stack of local patches. One in pkgsrc with mostly build fix patches. The base-system version of GDB (GPLv3) still relies on a set of local patches. I set a goal to reduce the local patches to bare minimum, ideally reaching no local modifications at all. Over the past month I worked on gdbserver for NetBSD/amd64 and finally upstreamed it to the GDB mainline, just in time for GDB 10. http://blog.netbsd.org/tnf/entry/the_gnu_gdb_debugger_and3 NetBSD is the first BSD and actually the first Open Source UNIX-like OS besides Linux to grow support for gdbserver. Plan for the next milestone Introduce AArch64 support for GDB/NetBSD.
