Fastest method to debug a windows kernel with a Linux host in 2020?

John__smithJohn__smith Member Posts: 3

So this has been asked before, but the previous questions are old, was wondering if any new approach has been introduced recently or not.

Currently when i want to debug a windows kernel, i use VMware which i have two guests, one for debugging using windbg preview or IDA pro and the other is the debugee.

but is there any faster method? i have heard about some other methods like using vagrantup or some other ways, so what is the fastest approach right now to debug a Windows kernel when you have a Linux operating system? anyway to run the Windbg directly on linux or..?
