[swift-users] About Swift Package Manager and LLDB

Hi Fadi,

Just two questions:
- did you compile & run this program on the same machine or not? (the .swiftmodule files and others are needed for LLDB)
- did you use your Linux distro's lldb or the one that comes with the Swift toolchain? (you'll need the very LLDB that comes with the Swift compiler you used (next to swiftc) IIRC)
