I just want to try to fix bugs I encounter in the applications. What do you usually use ? Linux ?

depends on the application. Most often Linux or BSD. For existing applications you will get an ready set-up make system where you can just type "make" so if you want help debugging and developing patches, an editor and gdb are all what is needed. Some applications have a ProjectCenter project, however makefiles are also provided. Since debugger integration in PC is incomplete and partially functional (want help?) so no real gain compared to a terminal + gdb.

A couple of Applications are ported to Mac, so you may compile and test them on Mac, however it may help as a reference, the final goal is, at least for me, to have the application functioning properly on GNUstep. Of course if the bug reproduces both on GNUstep and MacOS, it is an application bug and it is often more comfortable debugging on Mac, but if not, then understanding if it is the application code or GNUstep... is the fun of it.

So, what apps are you concerned of?

Also, where are you using the said application to encounter a bug? On Mac or on Linux?
