DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2009-03
Re: Dragonfly BSD and virtual machine | GSoC 09 ...
Okey, No problem, I'm looking at Valgrind again.
About Serial/Remote debugger, I can go ahead if anyone of you guys may help me to point out extactly
what exactly will be starting point on Dragonflybsd or no need of thinking about this issue for the time being etc?
I tried from my best to search something related to serial port module in dragonflybsd but no luck yet :(

Well, I'm being corrected on IRC re: Valgrind. People are telling
me they think its harder then I thought it was, so I guess it's
a reasonable GSOC project :-).
We do have kernel gdb-over-serial, or at least we used to (inherited from
FreeBSD). It might not be operational in DFly right now.
The remote debugging idea is still a bit too raw.
