Hi all,

Recently, I have connected my ARM target connected to a Windows machine with my work station in Linux. Windows machine has an openOCD server.

I was able to connect from Linux to the target, run the application and apply some breakpoints. Now I want to debug the code from eclipse.

I did the following steps:

First on Windows:
1) Launch openOCD server

Then on Linux:
1) Go to Run>Debug configurations
2) Create new C/C++ Remote Application
3) In Main tab, I select the executable file. Below I click Select other... and I select GDB (DSF) Manual Remote Debugging Launcher
4) In Debugger tab, I select Strop on startup at Init
5) I set the path to my GDB tool (arm-rtems5-gdb)
6) .gdbInit in my home directory (see below for content)
7) On Connection sub tab I set the correct TDP IP with the correct port

Then I click on Debug... but nothing happens over my code.

my .gdbInit file is:

set remotetimeout 5
show remotetimeout

set breakpoint pending auto

def zynq-connect
  target remote  myIPaddress:3333

def zynq-fsbl-restart
 mon xilinx_ps7_init

def zynq-restart
 mon xilinx_ps7_init
 #mon load_image fsbl.elf 0x00000000 elf
 mon resume 0
 mon sleep 2000
 mon halt

# Zynq debug start up.


load /path/executable.elf

I don't know why this gdbInit works in console but not in eclipse. If i try to send anny command from debugger console openOCD returns the message "Info: drpped 'gdb' conection"

I put some breakpoint on code, I compile the executable. Then nothing happens, the executable runs correctly (because it prints messages) and it doesn't stop at the breakpoint.

Thanks in advance
