I am unable to debug in Nebeans 6.5 or 6.7 on Fedora 11. Everytime I startup the debugger, I get the following message in the terminal window:
&"warning: GDB: Failed to set controlling terminal: Operation not permitted\n"
Normally, output from the debugger goes to the terminal window but this is the only message I receive in the window.
I am running Fedora 11 X86_64 with Java version 1.6.0_14-b16. I have tried Nebeans 6.7 and 6.7.1. Nebeans 6.5.1 is even worse. It displays the warning in the terminal window and then exits the debugger. The debugger version is 126.96.36.19990302-33.fc11(x86_64). I have even installed the latest version of gdb 188.8.131.5290804. Same result.
I have successfully been using Netbeans since 5.5 mostly on Fedora (7, 8, 9 and 10). I have an installation of Netbeans 6.5 and 6.7 running on Ubuntu 9.04 x86_64 with no GDB problems (version 6.8-3ubuntu2). I want to stay on Fedora 11 but I need Nebeans 6.7 to function with GDB.
I did find some references to this error message on Google ...
"Thiago Bauermann fixed a bug in GDB, just after the release of 6.8, to allow GDB to set the controlling terminal of the inferior."
But as I said earlier, I tried the latest snapshot of GDB and it did not work. My next step will be to try Eclipse.
Any help would be appreciated!
