Remote Debugging

  • Hi,

    I am working on LPC1768. I want to debug test_ram.elf file using arm-none-eabi-gdb on qt creator.
    I downloaded code to test from

    Unfortunetely, I couldn't handle remote debugging. I want to debug using j-link gdbserver.
    I tried Debug->Start Debugging->Attach to Remote debug server
    Start Debugger Settings
    Debugger : C:\Program Files\CodeSourcery\Sourcery_CodeBench_Lite_for_ARM_EABI\bin\arm-none-eabi-gdb.exe
    Local Executable : C:\Users\asd\qtprojects\pr2\test_ram.elf
    Host and Port : localhost:2331
    Architecture : arm
    GNU : auto
    Sysroot :
    Location of debugging information :
    Override host GDB start script : C:\Users\asd\qtprojects\pr2\prj\lpc17xx_flash_jlink_1.gdb

    I got this warning after doing settings above :

    The preferred debugger engine for debugging binaries of type 'unknown-unknown-unknown-unknown-unknown' is not available. The debugger engine 'Gdb engine' will be used as a fallback. Details: The CDB debug engine does not support the unknown-unknown-unknown-unknown-unknown ABI.

    Thanks, in advance
