gdb Debugger Fails
« on: February 17, 2008, 10:46:12 pm »
The debugger invoked by Code::Blocks build SVN 4875 fails very quietly. If I build a simple Hello World program successfully and then attempt to start the debugger with F8, the debugger message window shows:

Code: [Select]
Building to ensure sources are up-to-date
Build succeeded
Selecting target:
Debug
Adding source dir: C:\temp\HelloWorld\
Adding source dir: C:\temp\HelloWorld\
Adding file: bin\Debug\HelloWorld.exe
Starting debugger:
failed

When I close the project I receive a message that the debugger will be terminated.

The computer is running Windows XP. The GNU GCC compiler is selected. The Toolchain Executable for the debugger points to gdb.exe version GNU gdb 6.7.50.20071127. Using the Automated MinGW Installer, the MinGW installation is at current as of today. The build uses mingw32-g++.exe with -g option set.

Where should I look for the problem?
