IDE cannot find Debugger (gdb)
« on: October 07, 2017, 05:12:40 pm »
after installation the IDE comes up with message Debugger file not found (Datei nicht gefunden).
I did search the whole computer and didn't find anything like "gdb". where to search?
Installation is:
Lazarus 1-64
fpc 3.0.2-intel-macosx
ppc src 3-0-2-macosx

Did you follow the instructions here:


Despite a few complications, gdb generally works well. You don't say what version of Mac OS, some people report difficulties with Sierra, which I have not yet tried.
