Description: What is Linice?

Linice is an Intel x86-based, Linux source-level kernel debugger with the look and feel of SoftIce for MS Windows.

Linice is designed to be used by the people who have SoftIce experience. Linice provides a major subset of SoftIce commands, and adds a few new ones. For that reason the documentation describing individual commands is not provided. There are a number of good resources on the Web that describe all SoftIce commands (Google "SoftIce" keyword.)

What can I use it for?

You can use Linice to debug a kernel module or a user application. You can also debug a Linux kernel. Kernel does not need to be recompiled or patched in any way. The debugger proper loads as a module into the running kernel and supports debugging using the following devices:
local VGA frame buffer
remote serial terminal
monochrome monitor

You can break into a running kernel at any time by a hotkey. Place breakpoints, single step, watch variables etc. Multiple international keyboard layouts are supported.
