Eclipse for Scientific Computing 2022-23 doesn't support SDM [message #1851080] Sun, 27 March 2022 14:01 Go to next message

The latest version of Eclipse for Scientific Computing claims to have an 'in-built' parallel debugger-SDM but to me it seems that there is none or it is no more supported, which is quite unfortunate.

Infact I'm able to create and run a parallel C++ application by going to the "run configuration" . However when I do the same with "debug comfiguration", I get an error saying: "/usr/local/bin/sdm" not found.

Although it is clear that in the latest version of eclipse it should not look for this path because as per the latest update the SDM parallel debugger is already installed within. Interestingly, if I go to the "software update" in "HELP" tab, I can see that the SDM is already installed but even then eclipse looks for this path: "/usr/local/bin/sdm".

Any help will be tremendously appreciated.

I'm not sure the best place to ask a question about this. You could open a bug here:

Or you could ask on the mailing list:

I'm going to open a bug report for this.

But meanwhile I got it working (at least for local connections).

Just go into ~/.p2/pool/plugins/ and extract


somewhere. Each one inside a directory named after the jar.
So you'll end up with


Then cd into org.eclipse.ptp.debug.sdm_9.4.1.202108312239 and run sh BUILD
After that run make
And you should have a sdm file inside the bin folder. Copy it to /usr/local/bin/ or somewhere else (just remember to update the location in eclipse settings)

Hope that helps.
