[cdt-debug-dev] attaching to a process running as root


Is it possible to attach the debugger to an application running as root,
when eclipse is running as a regular user.  I can attach ok and set break
points when it connects, but as soon as I resume execution once it cannot
interrupt the process again: I cannot suspend or set new breakpoints.  I
guess because it doesn't have permissions to send the interrupt signal.

I get the error message: "Target request failed: failed to interrupt", when
pressing the suspend button.

Any ideas?
