No libgdb.a found

Code: [Select]
No libgdb.a found, supply NOGDB=1 to disable debugger support.
On Debian Unstable (and Testing, too), there is no libgdb-dev package.

There is no other package that provide this libgdb.a, too.

Just ignore that error message, unless you are using the textmode editor (FP).

Yes, you can ignore it or explicitly supply GDBMI=1 for building 3.0.4 when you build FPC which is the default for 3.2.0 and trunk anyway. (and you have the reverse option NOGDBMI=1 for those)
That way FPC will use the MI interface from gdb and does not look to try to link to libgdb.

When you ask a question that is actually answered in the documentation, you are either lazy or a moron.

Thank you. I don't use the textmode IDE so I don't have to care about it.

I believe Lazarus already uses gdbmi for a long time, so in that case ignore it indeed.

I'm currently going through building a sequence of FPCs on i386 as a fallback system (and to troubleshoot something which I suspect is 64-bit specific).

At what point should I stop using GDB_V607=1 and switch to GDBMI=1? Is it strictly 3.2, or would it be realistic in 3.0.4/2/0?

Yes, it's strictly 3.2 (and newer), considering that it is part of the New Features list.

Thanks for that. I wasn't sure to what extent that should have been interpreted as "all new in 3.2" as opposed to "is now preferred".
