Hi all,

I'm trying to debug the mozilla plugin with gdb in Linux (ubuntu 10)

Command line:

                gdb -args vlc -plugin-path=/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libvlcplugin.so

when I type 'run' however, I get a "No modules were found, refusing to start. Check that you properly gave a module path with -plugin-path."

I tried doing a  ./configure -prefix=/usr -enable-mozilla, but that breaks the make file.

I'm I even going about this the right way? I couldn't find any info on the web about debugging the PLUGIN, and I am more of a windows guy and am not as familiar with linux as I'd like to be so I'm not sure if I am even close.
