Running NAMD on debug mode

Could any one please explain me how to use the debug mode in NAMD?
I generally run namd from within the command line ( I have access to the
cluster through ssh). When I try to run something like

charmrun ++debug +p2 ++local /usr/local/bin/namd2 job.namd

I get the message

ERROR> DISPLAY must be set to use debugging mode

On charmrun 's help it says
++debug Run each node under gdb in an xterm
window [1]

Does it means that I need to run charmrun from within X windows?

Best Regards
Cesar Avila
