Problems debugging on Mac - missing boost debug symbols

This might sound silly but I've never needed to include debug symbols before. They may have been included by someone else on the project but not by me.

I am receiving a SIGTRAP exception breakpoint at a weird place and the GDB debugger log is displaying the following "can't open to read symbols: No such file or directory". Most of the problems (if not all) appear to be boost issues.

I am trying to debug a C++ application on a Mac using CLion, which uses CMake. Somebody mentioned that I may not have the debugger symbols installed. I've been looking around at different questions and on the internet. However since this topic is new to me, the more I read the more confused I get.

Can someone help me figure out how to get the symbols I am missing?

Hi Patricia.

Could you please tell us your OS X version, GDB and GCC version.
Also please tell how do you specified boost in CMakeLisits.txt and how do you install boost on your machine?
Is everything ok with code highlighting (all code resolved)?
