The missing part is related to the gdb-Python integration.
Look around for information about this integration - e.g.
installation instructions.

What is missing is apparently a C extension for Python. When you have
the source of this package, then it may contain a "setup.py".
In this case "[sudo] python setup.py install" may do everything necessary
to get a working C extension.

Not for this problem.

However, using "gdb" usually profits considerably from
having debugging symbols. A system installed Python usually
lacks those symbols. Therefore, after you have solved
the current problem, it may be profitable to compile your
own Python from source.
