Hi everyone,
sorry if this is offtopic at this place, didnt find anywhere else to post this.

My System:
-Windows 7
-Eclipse Neon Release (4.6.0) CDT + the OpenOCD plugin
- OpenOCD 0.10.0-dev-00287-g85cec24-dirty (2016-01-10-10:13)
The hardware is a ST-Link V2 for STM32 micros.

I created a new project and setup the debug config according to tutorials. Now it is basically working, but I can not see any source code, just disassemby. I added all the config to the debugconfiguration (stlink-v2.cfg and stm32f1x.cfg). It shows me an error "No source available for "0x0" ". Googling this gave me a few solutions from which none worked.
One thing that may be a point is that I am not actually using the ELF file, which is not generated. Instead I use the OUT file. Could that have anything to do with it or is the OUT file identical to a generated ELF file?

Am thankfull for any tips.

Regards

Did you build your binary with debug symbols (using -g)?

Thanks for the reply.
Yes, I added the -O0 and -g. Here is a part of the makefile:

# Flags
#CFLAGS = -I./ -c -Wall -fno-common -mcpu=cortex-m3 -mthumb -DTRACE_LEVEL=$(TRACE_LEVEL) -g -O0
CFLAGS = -I./ -c -Wall -fno-common -mcpu=cortex-m3 -mthumb -DDEBUG_BUILD -g -O0
AFLAGS = -mcpu=cortex-m3 -mthumb -g -mapcs-32
PFLAGS = -E -P -x assembler-with-cpp -D ASM_CODE -D $(TARGET)
LFLAGS = -v -T$(LINKER_SKRIPT) -S -nostartfiles
CPFLAGS = -Obinary --gap-fill=0xff
ODFLAGS = -S

So you need to have the binary on the target to run it, obviously. That one need not have -g.
But you also need to have the binary on the host where eclipse and gdb are running, so they can read
the symbols. That one needs -g.

Do you properly specify the binary on the host in your launch?

Not quite sure.
How do I specify the host to not have the -g but the target to have?

My debug Configuration looks like this:
In the Main Tab I entered the OUT file under C/C++ Application.
In the Debugger Tab I entered the openocd.exe path and -f interface\stlink-v2.cfg and -f target\stm32f1x.cfg in config options
In the Startup Tab I checked the "use project binary" for Load Symbols and Load executable, both show the OUT file path
In the Source Tab I got two entries with the Projectpath, one Folder Icon is yellow, the other blue
In the Common Tab I didnt do anything

Sorry for being unclear. You can use -g on both host and target. I just wanted to point out if you need to save
space on the target, you can actually have a binary compile without -g.

But for now, let's use -g on both target and host.

I'm not familiar with the details of this particular launch. You will need to troubleshoot on your side.
What you can do is google for eclipse source lookup and see if you get some pointers.
You can also look at any errors in the 'gdb traces':
https://wiki.eclipse.org/CDT/User/FAQ#I.27ve_been_asked_for_.27gdb_traces.27.2C_where_can_I_find_them.3F

Sorry that I can't help more myself.

Hi there,

Having a difficult time getting the openOCD debugger to launch in a new setup. I am setting up openOCD and Eclipse on a new operating system, using a Nucleo F030R8 board that debugs fine on another system. When I launch the debugger in Eclipse I get the "error in final launch sequence":

Error in final launch sequence
Failed to execute MI command:
-target-select remote localhost:3333
Error message from debugger back end:
localhost:3333: No such file or directory.
Failed to execute MI command:
-target-select remote localhost:3333
Error message from debugger back end:
localhost:3333: No such file or directory.
localhost:3333: No such file or directory.


For what it's worth, I can run the debugger in terminal with ./openocd -f board/st_nucleo_f0.cfg and get:

and the LED LD1 blinks alternatively green and red. Similarly, I can run External Tools in Eclipse just fine, but this doesn't open the debugger. So it seems like I'm close, but something isn't quite right. Let me know if you need any other details of my system.

The message tells that GDB is not happy as it does not find a running copy of OpenOCD on the target. Start openOCD on the target and try again.

Sorry, not sure if I totally understand you. To take a guess at what you meant, I launched openOCD in terminal then tried to run debug mode in Eclipse. This was the error:

OpenOCD failed with code (-1).
For more details, see the openocd console.

Did you mean something else?

(sorry about the separate thread, i'm new here and my post didn't show up for some time so I wasn't sure that it worked)

Without knowing the details of your setup, it starts to be difficult to pinpoint the failure.

The last report seems to show an attempt to start another OpenOCD from Eclipse after the separate one is running.

The complaints about localhost:3333 report that the GDB in started from Eclipse attempted to reach OpenOCD running on local host and with standard setup, where the TCP port 3333 listens for GDB commands.

Is there anything I can show? I'm pretty desperate to get this to work...
