Trying to use Creator to debug QNX Neutrino apps



  • I'm trying to use Creator to debug QNX Neutrino apps remotely.

    I've gotten as far as this: I can go to the Debug menu, select Start Debugging->Start and Attach to Remote Application, type in my
    debugger (ntox86-gdb.exe), executable, and the IP/port of my target. When I click OK, there's a long pause, and finally a dialog: "The gdb process exited unexpectedly (code 101120)".

    Any ideas?

    Which version of creator are you using?



  • I'm using 2.3.0. I found out that I'm probably struggling with GdbEngine, and I also found a suggestion somewhere that I must use gdb >= 6.8, while the ntox86-gdb I'm stuck with is version 5.2.1. I hope there's a fix!


  • Moderators

    Actually we recommend using gdb >= 7.2.



  • Looks like direct support for QNX debugging was added to Qt Creator:

    Add support for the remote QNX debugging protocol



  • I use Qt Creator for development (mostly QML), but for debugging C++ code, i use Momentics, you can set up a project that compiles and deploys in both tools.
