This is strange. As long as you don't try to attach gdb from a terminal
running inside X, attaching should work fine (with gdb -p $(pidof X)).
If you see the X process in ps, there's no reason you couldn't attach.

This is strange too. Installing the -dbg package should not change
anything regarding "does it start successfully or not?". It only
provides some debugging symbols for gdb.

The log is pretty small and doesn't show any problem. Is this the right one?
