Problem with GDB.

  • Hi,

    I have a little problem with debugging on Archlinux 64bit. Some info:

    • I have installed Qt SDK
    • Qt Creator 2.3.x
    • GDB 7.3.x
    • GCC 64Bit tool chain

    My problem is that I don't see some object values for example QFile or QDir. Here are screen shot with simple code and my problem: "Screenshot":http://wstaw.org/m/2011/11/16/2011-11-16-185607_1680x1050_scrot.png - look at "file" value.

    How I can fix that problem? It's really annoying :/

    Best regards,

  • gdb 7.3 was not even released when Qt Creator 2.3 was... so it is obviously not supported. It might work, I don't know. Try the Qt Creator 2.4 rc, maybe that will work better?

    Update: Qt Creator 2.3 was tested with a pre-release of gdb 7.3 and is supposed to work with it.

  • I have downgraded it to GDB 7.2 and problem still exists. Do you use Qt Creator on Linux with GDB? All is working for you? Maybe it's distro problem?


  • It works for me here (Ubuntu 10.10, 32 bit).

    Are you sure your gdb is compiled with Python scripting enabled?

    I think the best way to handle this is on bugreports.qt.nokia.com. Make sure to attach the Debugger Log (contents of right pane of Windows->Views->Debugger Log).

  • Yes, it uses Python 2.7.2.
