HOWTO : edb-debugger on Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS

When we are doing debugging work on Windows system, we will use Immunity Debugger or Olldbg. Those are very good debuggers for Windows system. When doing debugging work on Linux, there is a command line version, namely GDB (The GNU Project Debugger). How about the GUI version of Linux debugger? Yes, there is one available, it is namely Evan's Debugger (edb-debugger).

Step 1 :

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev libboost1.48-all-dev subversion

Step 2 :

sudo -sH
cd /opt

svn checkout http://edb-debugger.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ edb-debugger
cd edb-debugger
make install

Step 3 :

To run it. You can run it at any directory.

sudo -sH

If you run it for the first time, you will be prompted for not loading some plugins, you can solve it when the pop up windows showing up.

Preferences -- Directories

Symbol Directory : /opt/edb-debugger
