Write a section in the FreeBSD developers handbook about debugging the kernel with DCons
completed by: issyl0
mentors: Gavin Atkinson
Description of task
The FreeBSD developers handbook outlines multiple ways to debug the system's kernel to find bugs and errors. What's missing is debugging the system using DCons. The steps to do so have been outlined in the following FreeBSD wiki page: http://wiki.freebsd.org/DebugWithDcons This needs to be written as a subsection in the debugging chapter: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/developers-handbook/kerneldebug.html so that developers can find enough information to use DCons for that purpose. The subsection needs to be correctly formatted and must conform to our documentation source code style guidelines.
A FreeBSD system (in a VirtualBox Virtual Machine) installed on your computer.
Knowledge of the documentation guidelines for the FreeBSD project: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/fdp-primer/
