I have a unix source which forks right at the start. Xcode continues in parent then... and therefore exits.
Can I somehow debug the client with a GUI?

Found it! sorry
If you want to follow the child process instead of the parent process, use the command set follow-fork-mode.


set follow-fork-mode mode
Set the debugger response to a program call of fork or vfork. A call to fork or vfork creates a new process. The mode can be:

parent
The original process is debugged after a fork. The child process runs unimpeded. This is the default.
child
The new process is debugged after a fork. The parent process runs unimpeded.
ask
The debugger will ask for one of the above choices.

show follow-fork-mode
Display the current debugger response to a fork or vfork call.
