Description Nils Ohlmeier 2002-04-12 11:48:36 UTC
kdbg can be installed without any debugger installed.
but without it's nearly useless :)
Comment 1 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-04-12 23:15:33 UTC
Is this really a thing that needs fixing?
Comment 2 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-04-13 08:51:17 UTC
Does it work with other debuggers than gdb ?
Comment 3 Nils Ohlmeier 2002-04-13 09:29:45 UTC
It seems that it only supports gdb (i thought i would also support other debuggers).
I would say it's missings dependecies in the ebuild. But maybe you are right,
that people which uses a debugger frontend are able to interpret the error
message "Couldn't start debugger" correct and install the gdb first.

I'll leave it to you to add a dep or just close the bug :)
Comment 4 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-04-13 15:31:09 UTC
Added a runtime dependency for >=sys-devel/gdb-5.0, as kdbg is really useless
without it.
