I am not able to get GDB to start in -tui mode.
My OS is Win XP, here is what i do

START->RUN->cmd(gdb -tui)
gdb:TUI mode is not supported

GNU gdb 6.8
This GDB was configured as "i686-pc-mingw32."

I know that GDB supports tui mode from v5. How come i am not able to get it to run in tui mode as i got v6.8?

I tried but to no avail. How to do i configure it? It says --enable is not a valid option.

Hmm it seems that i need to build GDB with --enable -tui configure. I have no idea how to do that as well :( I was just using the MinGW package that came with Code::Blocks IDE.

Anyone help please :( ?

Yeah, sorry I couldn't be of more help. If you are using C::B, you really don't need the text UI as the IDE has built in support for gdb...

Ok so i figured. You can't seem to use gdb in tui mode under Windows. Works fine under Linux(ubuntu) though.
