Debuggable Single User Build

To build from source with full debugging symbols, first build a full static (non_debug) build as follows but instead of using /tmp substitute your permanent disk path if you want to keep it.

cd /<repo_path>/
git clone --depth 1 "git://" cinelerra5 
cp -a /<repo_path>/cinelerra-5.1 /tmp/
cd /tmp/cinelerra-5.1

Then, to run as a developer in the debugger:

CFLAGS="-O2 -ggdb" make -j8 rebuild_all
cd cinelerra
gdb ./ci

When you get the gdb prompt, type the letter "r", for run, and the windows will come up. If there is a crash, the windows will freeze and typing "bt" for backtrace in the startup window after the gdb prompt, provides useful information.
