Using SiFive Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Development Version: 4.12.0.2019-08-2
with ARTY dev board. When debugging I get this error pretty much immediately.

"Error in services launch sequence - Interpreter `mi2' unrecognized."
mi2 is something to do with GDB - I know that much.

The project is built using gcc-8.3.0-2019.08.0 - the elf file is definitely there and it has built without error.

I've tried reinstalling my IDE and drivers.

Three months ago this was working. Now it has stopped.
I realise this sounds like a very niche error - however, hopefully someone else has seen something similar before and can make some suggestions

Actually, this is a little off-topic for bare-bones Eclipse. It might belong to SiFive support.

For starters, check the debug settings of your project to see which debugger is being called. It has to be a cross-GDB for your processor architecture.

Second, see if the debugger is really there by calling it from the command prompt.

mi2 is the communication protocol used between Eclipse and GDB.

Seems it was of topic but the solution in case anyone in future has this problem:

Recreate Project using Freedom-E SDK Software Project for my project - which was e310 arty (I had selected the wrong one).
When debugging use configuration for SiFive GDB OpenOCD Debugging.

This seemed to work.
