Oh, and if you *are* debugging a PostgreSQL process under the same uid as your own, adjust the ptrace_scope i the yama security module. Like the error message above tells you to. Details here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/41629/after-upgrade-gdb-wont-attach-to-process which I found by *searching for the error message text*. BTW, in general I recommend that when you're modifying and debugging PostgreSQL you run it under your normal user account using 'postgres' or 'pg_ctl', rather than messing with an operating system installation. It's much easier. -- Craig Ringer http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
