You shouldn't have to use Google as the Emacs manual is included in the Emacs
tarball, so it should be on your system unless Suse package documentation
separately like Debian.

That's odd because Emacs 21.x looked like this but Emacs 22.1 should look

Run gdb (like this):
gdb --annotate=3 /home/chris/mydata/Projects/SimSoup/simsoup-cpp/simsoup/simsoup

I've not used ECB but I have read a comment in ecb-compatibility.el that says
that gdb-ui.el's use of dedicated windows might conflict with ECB's so it's
possible that they have configured Emacs to just use text mode.  However, even
in this case Emacs 22.1 should look like this:

Run gdb (like this):
gdb --fullname /home/chris/mydata/Projects/SimSoup/simsoup-cpp/simsoup/simsoup

or this:

Run gdb (like this):
gdb --annotate=1 /home/chris/mydata/Projects/SimSoup/simsoup-cpp/simsoup/simsoup

What value does gud-gdb-command-name have?
