    RedHat - installing gdb

    Hi, i'm a new Linux Redhat user. I wanna install graphical gdb degugging enviorenment. I'm not using the Add/Remove applet because when i run it the system get non responsive. So I tried to install it by booting up by the CD. I installed gdb. But after installing, it was no where to be found. It's not in startup menu. Where is it?

    Thanx in advance for any help.

    open a shell and type gdb

    Actually, I am not sure that gdb offers a graphical front end of its own - you might want to try DDD (Data Display Debugger) as a graphical front end for GDB

    gdb is a command line tool
    add xxgdb and you get the graphic interface for it.

    the graphice ide will also have it as part of the tool options, you can specify gdb as debugger in your ide.

    the executable will be in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin
