Debugging is a neglected area in Linux, because some people (most notably
Linus) have a personal opinion that debuggers encourage bad programming.

However, there are enough documents on the web which explain how to hook
up gdb or SGI's kdb with the kernel.

If your focus is kernel debuggers and you have the time and inclination -
try FreeBSD's DDB too. It's derived from Mach and is a part of the FreeBSD
kernel sources.
