I am trying to debug a C++ program using the Eclipse IDE with GDB. Setting breakpoints isn't a problem, except for some lines in the code!

I can set breakpoints on some lines in the program, but when I try to set a breakpoint on certain lines, I get the "Breakpoint attribute problem: installation failed" error. I can step over to these lines, but I can't set a breakpoint.

Anyone have any ideas?

I've checked the GDB traces console and there is nothing there that indicates an error.

I'm using CDT version 8.1 and Juno on Mac OS X 10.8.2.

Do you have any compiler code optimizations turned on? If so, the compiler might be re-ordering code. In this case, the original source code line can't be mapped to the correct point in the linked code.

I don't. My debug build settings are all set to -O0 (No optimization). These are the compiler options I am using:

-I/usr/local/boost_1_51_0 -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/c++/4.2.1 -I/Library/Frameworks -I/usr/include/c++/4.2.1/backward -O0 -g3 -Wall -c -fmessage-length=0

This is really causing me a headache, not being able to set breakpoints where I need them. Is there any more information I can provide to help understand the problem better?
