[System: mac mojave 10.14.6, gdb 9.1 installed via brew]

I have recently installed gdb and am a newb user. After many hours of searching, I got it working by following the instructions from

https://sourceware.org/gdb/wiki/PermissionsDarwin

Of the instructions, I did not understand 1.3 which is the one about creating the xml file. I created the file but did not know where to put it or how to let gdb know where it is. I now get the below warning messages whenever I run debug.

I tested the debugger on a simple c function and it seems to work fine. But I want to make sure I have set up correctly, so would like some help with understanding the warnings and how to fix them. Many thanks.
