Refer to http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=tree&th=156343 for an initial description of the problem.

I'm working on a C++ project whose configuration is as follows:

- All the main code belongs to a shared library and a Makefile compiles that code into a file in a lib folder inside the project directory.
- A small main.cpp file was added for debugging purposes to serve as an entry point to the shared library.

My problem is that I can't set breakpoints on any part of the code that belongs to the shared library because I get a Breakpoint Installation Failed error, the error at the thread mentioned at the beginning. As mentioned in that thread, if I toggle the breakpoint, I can successfully set the breakpoint, furthermore if I disable and re-enable the breakpoint, I can successfully install it too.

I'd like it to work out of the box, because it's very annoying having to fix breakpoints for each debugging session. Am I missing something or is my debugging model impossible in CDT/GDB?

Thanks in advance.

This will be fixed in the next eclipse release.

Until then, see answer of a post from Jan 10th

Thanks, didn't know about the available debuggers. I'll be awaiting for the fix on new Eclipse then.
