Is there an available debugger which can be used with C code compiled using GCC on Gentoo? Is there such thing as an IDE in Gentoo Linux (which would include a debugger)?
If yes, what's it called? Where and how do I get it? And how do I use it? (that's all I need to know :D ).

At first I thought you were trolling, but the bottom part of your post makes me think that your question may be sincere... so...

First "emerge sys-devel/gdb", then "info gdb".

There's only about a bazillion frontends available for gdb, including ddd and that other operating system called emacs. But real men (eventually) learn to use it straight, just like their whiskey. Because both make debugging on a remote system so much easier.

Not a troll. I have sent my prof an email to have emerge this gdb. Thanks.

let me see if I understood you correctly, both you and your professor didn't thought of opening google and write "c debugger for linux"?

My professor is on vacation. In any event, he has left this part competely up to me. I did search for it, but could not understand most of what I was reading. Terribly sorry to inconvenience you with my beginner questions.

I mean no disrespect but in the linux world, a minimal searching and understanding skill is required.
even without entering the search result and just by looking on the titles any one can deduce the program's name.

Can you fill me in on how to setup debugging on a remote system? Or, better yet, what's the best way to to development on a Gentoo cluster (which, I think, does not have a graphical UI installed).

FYI: Not trolling, just beginnering (that's a word, right?).
