Novell introduces Linux kernel debugger

Novell has introduced a project to help find problems in the inner workings of Linux. Novell's Clyde Griffin announced the Novell Linux Kernel Debuggerin June on the Linux kernel mailing list.

"At this point the intent of this project is to gather comments and suggestions on how to improve NLKD and make it possible for NLKD to be included as a native (mainline) kernel debugger for Linux," Griffin said.

It's not the first such effort, however. Silicon Graphics has released its KDB project, and LinSysSoft has KGDB. "I would appreciate efforts to consolidate all of these and finally get one into the kernel," said Linux programmer Christoph Lameter in a follow-up posting.
