I'm trying to use the Tracepoint feature within Eclipse Indigo (3.7) for remote debugging with GDB Automatic Remote Debugging Launcher. I've enabled traces within the preferences / c/c++ / debug / gdb and have set tracepoints and associated actions, however, when attached to the remote gdbserver the Trace Control icons remain disabled (all are grayed out).|
My setup is that I'm running Eclipse Indigo on Linux 2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64 (uname -a). The Eclipse Debugger Remote Application launches "arm-linux-androideabi-gdb" version:
GNU gdb (GDB) 7.3-android-github.com/darchons
This GDB was configured as "--host=x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu --target=arm-elf-linux"
which connects via TCP to the remote gdbserver running on an ARM A8 (TI Davinci), which is running Android 4.0.3 (ro.build.version.sdk=15) on top of Linux 2.6.37 armv7l (uname -a).
The gdbserver version is:
GNU gdbserver (GDB) 7.3-android-github.com/darchons
This gdbserver was configured as "arm-linux-androideabi"
and the startup command used is: gdbserver --multi :10000 --attach <pid>, where <pid> is the process id of the process to be debugged.
If I execute "tstatus" from the Eclipse gdb terminal, the response is "Trace can not be run on this target".
Are tracepoints simply not supported on ARM architecture and / or Android OS? If tracepoints are supported in the noted setup then what am I missing?
