hi, thanks for the info. I saw that FAQ but it
sounded a little obscure.. "cross language debugging
support".. not sure what it meant. it sounded like
cross compilers. the FAQ says it handles source
files/line numbers but does not
support symbol tables. so I am starting to wonder
if kaffe just isnt debugger friendly. does anyone
use a debugger w/kaffe? I turned up a big gdb script
on the net somewhere.

I also cant figure out why it comes with "jdb" apparently
exactly the same as the sun version. (the man
pages are the same). running jdb that comes
with kaffe (redhat 7.1), I get this error msg

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: sun/tools/ttydebug/TTY
