Attach gdb to program?


Given a Debian package (kmail, in this case, with installed kdepim-dbg 
package) and an extracted source package: how do I properly start gdb (or 
ddd or ...) so that it finds both the debugging symbols and the source code?

Just gdb -p <pid> /usr/bin/kmail doesn't work :-(

(I've only ever used gdb on locally compiled simple projects, I've never 
worked with the separate symbol files as delivered in -dbg packages.)

thanks in advance
