I'm having only limited luck debugging XBMC with eclipse. It frequently locks up with xbmc.bin taking all four processors and xubuntu stops except for moving the mouse around.
Luckily I can ssh in from a defferent computer kill -9 xbmc.bin and then I'm back.
I haven't really investigated yet, but I was wondering if anyone had some hints or even a solution!

don't use eclipse. it gives 'sucks' new dimensions. anyways, it's likely gdb eating your ponies.. it has its quirks
Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

I use eclipse for quite a while and don't encounter any problems. I run it on a remote pc through ssh and X11 forwarding. The debug session loads much faster if you only compile those files with -g which you are interested in. (I do most development on Atom D2700 or E350).
