RE: [dsdp-dd-dev] Support for DSF/GDB on Windows host
Title: Support for DSF/GDB on Windows host
Cool. I'll be there. I've been working on a new mingw
toolchain for Wascana. I have gcc 4.3 building now and will start looking at
gdb. So the timing is good.
my understanding that code sourcery gdb is mingw based and the MI is the
same so you are right in saying that it will apply.
do good coordination we may have the windows part working very soon after the
Linux part is working!
great if you can make it next Tuesday.
The CodeSourcery packaging for ARM rocks, especially when
mixed with qemu (did someone say Android?). I'd love to see an open Eclipse
integration with it. I'm not sure how the CodeSourcery guys feel about that
since they seem to have a product that does just that. But with a nice DSF
integration, and if we can tweak the CDT build integration to work with gcc
cross compilers, we'd have it. Anyway, just some random thoughts I've had penned
up waiting for the topic to come up :)
I believe the code sourcery gdb is mingw based so whatever
we do for the host mingw gdb should apply. I'm not sure what that is yet but
something we need to look at. And, unfortunatey these meetings generally collide
with another meeting I have on Tuesdays at that time, but I'll try to make it
We have a need for DSF/GDB on a windows host and GDB
on a linux target.
It would be basically to
support the ARM GNU ToolChain GDB (http://www.codesourcery.com/gnu_toolchains/arm/download.html).
In addition to Mark and Francois, Tobias Södergren
from Ericsson will be able to spend time on this (testing, coding the delta
between the Linux support and the windows support, etc.).
It was not the plan to support windows for Ganymede
but with additional people and a few months before Ganymede maybe the DD
community is able to do it.
Pawel, can we add this topic to the DSF meeting next
If other people are interested in
helping to support windows for Ganymede (I think Doug Schaefer had a similar
need) please join the meeting next Tuesday.
