Good judgement is the result of experience … Experience is the result of bad judgement.

Either GDB or the (external) linker can't find the external debug info. You probably have more dwarf errors....
It is not FPC or Lazarus related.

I do not use external debug info. I'll just assume you mend debug info, external or not.

OK, that is interesting, how can I see the rest of the dwarf errors?

You probably hit same bug as I : https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=31599

Do you mean debugger? Compiler should work always.

taazz : If you are really using FPC 2.6.4, then please check if FPC 3.0.2 or the release candidate of 3.0.4 helps.

that is a slippery slope, changing compilers in lazarus is not as simple as changing a number of path entries, I have to go through the defines to make sure that it will not change the compilation path to something hiding the problem. Not something I look forward to. In any case I'm going to revert back to a working point in my svn repository for now and see if that helps.
