How to setup remote debugging?
« on: September 08, 2006, 03:08:34 pm »
Hi everyone,

I simply have no clue how to setup C::B to work with GDB server running on a small embedded Linux machine. I successfully run the remote GDB server, but when I start C::B Debugger it replies with:

"The selected target is only running pre/post build step commands
Cant Debug such target..."

On Target side is GDB server.
On Host side, C:B's debugger executable is using arm-elf-gdb.exe.
The Host is running on Windows XP/Cygwin platform.
Host and Target are linked through Ethernet.

Is there any chance that I can use some other debugger but the one provided with compiler, something that would definently work with C::B?

What are the commands I shall put into "Debugger initialization commands" block in Debugger Settings?
