Associate source of project while debugging with gdbserver [message #871521] Mon, 14 May 2012 10:16 Go to next message

Currently I'm trying to use eclipse as debugging interface for a c-project.

I have the c-project setup in my workspace. For some in-house reason I can not execute the application directly with gdb, but I have to debug it via gdbserver.

I tested if it works in gdb directly. I can connect and step through the program. And I can also use insight to step through the code. When I used eclipse I created a new Debug Configuration for "C/C++ Attach to Application" using "GDB (DSF) Attach to process launcher" and select gdbserver as debugger. I specified the port of the gdb server and also specified the gdb executable that I already used for testing it directly.

When I launch the debug configuration everything looks good. On the gdbserver console a line appears with "Remote debugging..." and in eclipse the Debug perspective opens and in the Debug view I see the application name and the gdb program. When I press "resume" the application gets executed. I can type commands in the console of eclipse and I get the appropriate feedback just like if I would execute gdb directly.

My problem now is that no matter which breakpoints I specify in the source files of the project, they are all ignored. I tried to fiddle around with the source lookup path. But no errors or other information pop up.
How can I associate the source code with the debugging?

For reference: I'm using eclipse 3.7.2 with the current cdt. gdb is 7.1 and I can't change anything in this area. In the near future it will probably get updated to 7.4.

EDIT: What I also noticed is that the views for variables and register are empty but the modules view is populated.

Hi,

I have exactly the same problem with eclipse 3.7.2 (Indigo SR2) and gdb 7.5.

Does anyone have an idea how to associate the source code with the debugging?

Thanks,
Stefan
