You can use gdb. The step option is quite useful.
Please ask your questions in more detailed manner.
use "man gdb" or visit http://www.gnu.org/software/gdb/documentation/

If you are not a programmer, you don't need a debugger

do i need anything other than firestarter? i just started using it so i went without anything for the first few weeks ive had a pc. ive had ubuntu the whole time but havent used any protection until firestarter a few days ago. i wanted to know about debugging bc i was downloading movies and shows a few weeks back and the dl speed dropped from 90 to 15kbs. im not a programmer so ill delete what i downloaded

Oh, I don't think the debugger will help for that. A debugger is something you use when you write a program that isn't working, and you need to figure out what line of code is crashing it.

I think I see the problem. If you have Comcast internet, the connection slows down really bad whenever you pull up a bittorrent program.
