Is there a ddd (or GUI) available for cuda-gdb?

Supposedly ddd just works with it, but I've never used it. Let me ask around...

How do you configure the ddd installation to integrate with cuda-gdb instead of host-only /usr/bin/gdb?

ddd --debugger cuda-gdb says the debugger team. I think they were mildly annoyed at me for asking instead of just doing man ddd myself :(

Thank you for finding the answer to my question.

I didn't see any reference to a GUI in the cuda-gdb User Manual, so one never knows whether there are special configurations beyond just switching the console debugger...

Isnt there any way to run DDD with cuda-gdb without need 2 graphic cards?

The [i]GETTING STARTED GUIDE FOR cuda-gdb PREVIEW RELEASE[/i] says the following

[quote]When the graphics desktop manager is running on the same GPU as CUDA then
debugging that GPU results in pausing of the GPU which also pauses the desktop and
thus freezes the GUI which makes the desktop unusable. To avoid desktop hangs
cuda-gdb can be used in the following system configurations.

So it's not possible to use a GUI with cuda-gdb e a single card system.

Anyday, anytime.

You can do it with two machines via ssh -X. You may also find emacs useful as it has both a gdb mode and can run in the console. Not as gui as ddd, but possibly good enough.

And you can console yourself with the fact that windows doesn't have a single card / debug in console option.

The problem with ssh -X is that is not possible to debug a graphical application. Since VBO's resides in GPU memory, there's no way ssh can send these data through a network, at least I wasn't able to do this.
