Firstly, thank you for the answer. 

I trying to install a GDB version 7 from cvs, then I have success in debug a 
program that use only C++ code and GSL, but I have no success with program 
that use Qt, the program don't stop in breakpoints, the command line GDB cmd 
and the buttons related with debug are all disabled. 

Yesterday, I install, from source, the new, most recent release of GDB 7.0 and 
now no success with both programs. A message is showed when I trying to run in 
debug mode, "You need gdb 6.8.50 or higher. You are using: GNU gdb (GDB) 7.0".

I also update my KDE to KDE 4.3.2 release 5.
