Hi,
Thanks for your reply. well the problem is that for gfb you need a python interpreter with debugging symbols, but unfortunately as i am using ubuntu9.10 it has python2.6 without debugging symbols. now there are two ways out of it.first is that if we could add debug symbols to pre installed pyhon2.6.Second is that i have installed python3.1 with debugging symbols but it has been installed in usr/local/bin opposed to usr/bin where python2.6 is installed. now can we somehow tell ubuntu to use python3.1 instead of python2.6?
Thirdly, when i type "python" in command shell python2.6 opens.
Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Sanam

Hi,

You need to install the python debugging packages for your ubuntu version. I guess its "python-dbg"

hi,
i am using ubuntu 9.10. it comes with preinstalled python2.6 having no debug symbols.How can i add debug symbols to it. Secondly i cant afford to install a fresh python version using OPT=-g way. Please tell me how can i add symbols to existing python2.6.

The error that i get in gdb when i attach a pid to it is :
Loaded symbols for /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/numpy/random/mtrand.so
