If I recall correctly the following should work.
1. Load the file with the place you want to set the break point. I use
C-x C-f. I then use a Cntl button and my left mouse button to easily
switch between files if needed.
2. Move the cursor to the place in the file where you want to break and
use C-c C-b. (I loaded gdb and looked at the Gud menu to help me
remember the exact command.)
3. Run the program. C-c C-r (I think)
4. Emacs should stop in that file. Then you can step continue etc.
If you are doing the above steps but are still running into a problem
let me know.
