Does it require compiling a debug build, or can it be done with a release build as well? I assume it can be done, but might lack proper feedback!?

Either way; which tools are needed and which guidelines should i follow?

For example, would;

gdb monerod

Generate enough information for the devs to work with? Or are there better ways?

You have the right steps, but a release build will not provide enough info so it would be better to compile a debug build.

  • Makes sense! Would i also be able to locate and pinpoint libboost problems? And is there any need for loading libraries that supply symbols, or would a debug build achieve that?

  • A debug build shouldn't need any other libraries, in general. libboost - maybe. Half of libboost is header files, so those bits will be debuggable. Half is external libraries, so for those parts you'd need debug libraries.
