nightly builds: impossible to debug?
« on: March 12, 2006, 05:18:29 pm »
I'am trying a lot of the nightly builds last period of time on my win2k machine using the mingw compilers.
Everything runs smoothly but whenever I compile debug information in and put a breakpoint somewhere I get a message like the following in the debugging pane:
Code: [Select]
Selecting target: default
Compiling: done
Adding source dir: G:\CodeBlocksProjects\MovieProcessing\trunk\
Adding file: G:\CodeBlocksProjects\MovieProcessing\trunk\MovieProcessing.exe
Starting debugger: done
Registered new type: wxString
Registered new type: STL String
Registered new type: STL Vector
Setting breakpoints
Debugger name and version: GNU gdb 5.2.1
No source file named G:/CodeBlocksProjects/MovieProcessing/trunk/MainFrame.cpp.

and the breakpoint has no influence at all.
Of course this makes sense because I think the filename is to a large extent still in "unix style". Is this a matter of just changing a setting? Do more people encounter this problem?

This same problem I also encountered a couple of times before, but I never managed to fix it so always reurned to RC2 where the debugging is working smoothly as well.

That's the problem:

Debugger name and version: GNU gdb 5.2.1

Use gdb 6.3

That solves all the problems! Thanks! :D :D :D

Just a small question: gdb 6.3 is a snapshot release. Does this give any nasty problems?

Haven't experienced any.
Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code.

I cannot find GDB 6.3 for Win32.
Do you know where to get it?


Thanks in advance, Sebastian

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/gdb-6.3-2.exe?download

Thank you!

(I was looking for it at SourceForge but did not look at the snapshot section.)

No problem. Things are hard to find sometimes. I have had the same problem myself. :P

I have gdb 6.3-2 under Win32 and 6.1.1 under FreeBSD, but I still have a problem with debugging code...  :(

Code: [Select]
Starting debugger: done
Invalid debugger script: 'gdb_types.script'
Setting breakpoints
Debugger name and version: GNU gdb 6.1.1 [FreeBSD]
No source file named /usr/home/madnut/src/ode/ode_cvs/src/scan.cpp.
Breakpoint 1 (/usr/home/madnut/src/ode/ode_cvs/src/scan.cpp:988) pending.

p.s. Ukrainian is my native language  :)

Hi! I have new trouble with debugger under FreeBSD. :) since 2256 revision till last. gdb just freeze and nothing todo after:

Code: [Select]
Starting debugger: done
Registered new type: wxString
Registered new type: STL String
Registered new type: STL Vector
Setting breakpoints
Debugger name and version: GNU gdb 6.1.1 [FreeBSD]

I think, that problem is here:
 gdb_driver.cpp, line 199
Code: [Select]
QueueCommand(new DebuggerCmd(this, _T("start")));

Cause all working good after changing command back to "run"
So why need "start"?

your gdb says 6.1.1, could try to upgrade to gdb 6.3.x ??
