How do I debug a powermac application using gdbserver provided there is no gdbserver

I've tried compiling various version of gdb found in apple opensource -specifically the gdbserver part but it seems that the Apple developer never finished working on it.

Whenever I try using it it segment faults all over the place.


If you can run it in QEMU, you can try connecting to the QEMU's GDB stub. Note that this will provide you the CPU-level view, with the OS kernel included, so it may take some work to get to the app's code.
