IDE and debugging on Linux

I recently switched from Windows XP to Fedora 9. Is it possible to use Eclipse like Visual Studio (using gdb from console is not too convenient) with all debugging options ? If so, can somebody give me a clue how to make a CUDA project template for eclipse ?

You can use the debugger that ships with eclipse, it’s not as convenient as visual studio however. The 64 bit version seems to be somewhat buggy, don’t know if that’s also the case with the 32-bit version. I have the debugger crashing randomly while trying to step through host code. Even though it doesn’t happen often, it still happens and that can get quite annoying.

How to set it up: I recommend you use the FindCuda cmake script and generate yourself a project file for eclipse.
